    Good news.

    Hopefully GLES 3.0 becomes a "base line" target across all platforms (except for Windows 8 which is killing off everything but DX11 support in Metro), so going forward, application developers can improve quality without worrying their software wont run on OSS Linux driver.

    As a first gen Core i3 owner, Iím not too impressed. (According to the photo on Ianís blog, first gen Intel HD Graphics isnít supported.) My computer isnít even 2 years old. But then itís too slow and/or buggy for most 3D games of the past decade anyway.

    So if this was to become a ďbaseline targetĒ, many people would not be able to run new 3D software. I donít think itís a good idea to force people to buy new computers every year.
