What's the point in using it anyway?
It doesn't offer nothing over XFree86 except updated libraries that any vendor couldn't have done themselves. For now I think it's just vaporware. Just exists for some copyright issues. I think all these people should use their time implementing for example 2D/3D context switching in X so

that I could finally play games with my 3DFX rather than endlessly bitching about copyrights and the "holy GPL."

Nope, that's how it USED to work. Now,
this is
pretty much the whole shebang. A quick look
at the release notes will confirm the existence
of drivers.

But for anyone who's unsure, don't worry
--
every major distro is will be packaging this
soon enough anyway :)

X and Xfree!
Do not install this over XF86. it's not designed for that. In a few months, XFree.org will have it as part of 4.0 and then it will work properly.

This does not come with any drivers for video cards.
