So... Dave was nice enough to layout what the priorities are for Red Hat staffed manhours when it comes to video driver development work. The real question is there a business interest that cares enough about 3-D support to staff manhours to work on the 3-D? Novell? Intel? ... dare I say it... Canonical? Other than Red Hat whose funding video driver work and are any of them actually prioritizing 3-D support at the top of their staffing?
Dave goes on to say that 3-D support is a good candidate for someone in the community to step up and contribute to improve.
