Intel Linux Video Driver Now on Par with the Windows One, Thanks to Collabora

Timothy Arceri reports for Collabora in a recent blog post that it’s a known fact that the open source Intel OpenGL video driver was always behind times, always trying to catch up to the proprietary video drivers that are available for Microsoft Windows operating systems. That ends now, as the Collabora team, who always had lots of contributions to the Linux kernel, managed to reach a major milestone by implementing OpenGL 4.4 support to the open source Intel video driver supporting recent Intel Broadwell and Intel Skylake platforms.
