I'm beginning to wonder if there is any hope of this for any 3D video in
XFree86. It's stupid that such a great thing as OpenGL is out of reach
of good hardware simply because it doesn't use a bullshit-compliant
operating system.

I run Linux on my workstation because it's the only non-Microsoft OS I
can find that supports my nVidia card well.
