    Default DRI3000 (DRI3) Begins To Take Shape Again

    Phoronix: DRI3000 (DRI3) Begins To Take Shape Again

    Immediately following XDC2012 there was a lot of talk about "DRI3", but nothing materialized in time for the forthcoming X.Org Server 1.14 release. The DRI3 plans haven't died off but now Keith Packard is talking about this next Direct Rendering Infrastructure update as DRI3000...

    Default Plan9 was right

    > DRI3 still revolves around using POSIX file descriptors for passing kernel objects between the X Server and the application.

    I wouldn't have thought that Plan9's concept are useful even on low level frameworks!

    "Everything is a file" is one of the defining features of Unix.

    Unix's successor Plan 9 took this concept into distributed computing with the 9P protocol.

    Interesting to see new work being done for X.org even though there is development going on for Wayland.

    Kernel-side infrastructure of it, maybe. But not the exact extensions, they can't. The extensions are X specific. Unless you're talking about the XWayland backend, but thats different.
