    It will Just Work when using the right packages, and you will get an updated driver quickly and easily.

    This you can already have on sunxi hw, but lima will make it even easier and better.

    Oh, those 6-10% gains on glmark2-es2 is with 4x MSAA enabled, as i currently have this hardwired to on (as the hw is designed so that it gets 4xMSAA almost for free). Lima will give everyone the ability to enable 4xMSAA _all_ the time. A potential 60% performance gain under X11 while enjoying 4xMSAA, how nice is that

    Any OEM's interested? (So that Lima lands as fully supported out-of-the-box on shipping hw.)

    Did You checked Dolphin recent blog post? It seams some code is shared between Mali and Ardreno binary blobs. Seen it in open source code?

    (Oh! And did You think about exposing very good debug info in Your driver via KHR_debug so that actual app devs have reason for pushing for Lima drivers as default?)

    I believe that was intended as a joke because they both had the same bug. I really doubt the mali and adreno blobs actually share some code.

    Dunno if this is the case but some closed source drivers are based on mesa, so it may be true that some drivers share code.
