I just got the impression that he "looked", I wanted to buy an r200 based
card recently for some drm work I'm doing and I found one on the net quite
handly.. I live in a slightly larger city than Tralee and I still wouldn't
expect to pick one up in a computer shop .. I probably could but I don't
expect to .. NVIDIAs are everywhere... I really don't care if people want
to use whatever graphics card they want, I'm quite happy to use NVIDIA on
my main work PC, where I develop 3d stuff, I have access to
i810/i830/mach64/r100/r200 for doing drm/Xorg testing,
btw someone just asked about porting the basic Nvidia 3d stuff from
UTAH-GLX to the DRI, I've no idea if they'll do it or not though.. it
would be interesting to at least have accelerated triangle drawing..
