Default Re: plans for 3D vision under linux ???

Who uses linux... geeks. And geeks love their gadgets and toys, and 3D Glasses do also fall in that category. I think there are quite a few early adopters in the linux community.

But Quadros are too expensive to be used as toys. I think real quad buffered 3d with a Geforce would be of interest to Linux users. But of course then there would be only little incentive to buy the quadros anymore so I'm afraid nvidia won't do this.

Thanks for the answer anyway!
