Any GPU acceleration on Linux ever?
The current update 10 build 28 shows that Java doesn't use GPU accelaration on Linux (Ubuntu 8.04.1). Are there plans to support this feature in Linux as well?
As a reference I checked this site, the applet in the lower left corner it reports which way Java renders the graphics:
On windows Java uses Direct3D and the CPU is under 1%, on Linux it doesn't use acceleration (OpenGL) and the CPU is above 60% - that makes such applets on Linux dangerous/unusable!
