"SGI Releases OpenGL Sample Implementation to Open Source Community Expected to Increase Availability of 3D Graphics Acceleration on Linux."

"SGI...announced it has released source code for its OpenGL(R) Sample Implementation to the open source community. The Sample Implementation is used today by most major 3D graphics hardware vendors as the basis for high-performance 3D graphics acceleration."

"This widely anticipated release clears the way for the emergence of high-quality OpenGL drivers for the Linux(R) platform. The availability of high-performance OpenGL implementations on Linux will enable a class of professional, technical and creative applications such as computer-aided design (CAD), molecular modeling, scientific visualization, architectural walk-throughs and visual simulation. In addition, the widespread availability of OpenGL implementations is likely to accelerate adoption of Linux as a gaming platform."
