Layered on top of the industry-standard OpenGL(R) toolkit, IRIS Performer 2.3 for Linux supports the OpenGL graphics library and will run on current Intel(R) Pentium(R) systems as well as future IA-32 and IA-64 architecture-based systems. The software is provided at no cost via a World Wide Web download...."
