    While LLVMpipe is now commonly used as the default software fallback on the Linux desktop in cases where there is no OpenGL hardware driver available, it remains limited to OpenGL 2.1 compliance and doesn't see too much love by developers. Fortunately, VMware developers continue to take some care of this driver and today there's now support for two new OpenGL extensions pertaining to texture buffers...
