3D in 3D!
Greetings LG fans,
and click on gl_in_lg.jpg.
With the recent release of Nvidia's 8756 driver, OpenGL programs now run *INSIDE* Looking Glass. Check out the this image. This is running lg3d-app on Solaris x86 on an Ultra 20 with a Quadro FX 3000. The two glxgears windows are not still images--they are actually actively moving, running 3D OpenGL programs. Notice that OpenGL windows can be transparent in LG and they also can be slanted. While slanted, the gears on the right keep turning.
Best of all, I didn't have to do a thing. Nvidia did it all for me!
Many thanks to Andy Ritger and his driver team. Awesome job!
There is still a ways to go in the performance area, but the community is currently in the process of planning optimizations. Once we get it
fully tuned it will be an excellent differentiator from Windows Vista.
Also, as far as I know, ATI doesn't have this feature. As usual, Nvidia continues to pave the way.
