"3dfx extended its strategy to court the Linux community by
releasing its Glide 3D graphics API under an open source licence
and detailing its Voodoo 2 and 3 hardware specs."
"Of course, it's not the blessing that 3dfx is portraying the
move. While it's certainly good news for coders keen to use
3dfx-based 3D accelerators on their platform of choice, it's also a
sign that 3dfx accepts that Glide has a much diminished role in the
mainstream games market."
"Glide was released when games developers had no other
games-oriented graphics API they could use to harness 3dfx's Voodoo
technology. Now, we've got Direct3D and OpenGL, and indeed, these
are the areas in which 3dfx will focus its own future development
efforts, the company has said."
