"As soon as I read about this collaborative effort, I fired off a question to the appropriate PR contact at nVidia, SGI and VA Linux."

"Gentlemen, I just read your press release; this is certainly an interesting development - but I have a few questions whose answers will interest my readers:

1.will this OpenGL be based on Mesa?
2.If not, why not?
3.Will Brian Paul be involved in this effort? He has been spearheading Mesa on Linux.
4.If not, why not?
5.Will this OpenGL be Open Source?
6.Under what license?
7.Will the shared library be call compatible allowing the choice of your OpenGL and Mesa? "

"I must say I am very impressed with the speed of nVidia's response; Mr. Michael W. Hara, Vice President of Corporate Marketing for nVidia replied in less than 50 minutes!"
