"3dfx cards are some of the hottest video cards on the market. So, of course 3dfx wanted to make sure that their product worked with one of the best O/S's around. The whole goal of the 3dfx opensource drivers is to have very easy portability in the linux O/S."

"Enter Daryll Strauss, who approached 3dfx and offered to do a glide port for linux. Now, keep in mind that glide came along because of 3dfx. The Glide rendering package was made specifically for 3dfx and thier video cards."

"Daryll Strauss started to port the glide rendering package with the intent of easy portability to the linux OS. Daryll made sure that each port worked with the newest and latest games at the time (eg: Quake, Quake II, Quake III)."
