I agree that the current situation is unsatisfying and doesn't show solid commitment; I expect there are good reasons why NVIDIA gives Linux precedence, however, and while I also agree that FreeBSD developments such as KSE should not be sacrificed in favor of third party software support, it would have been great if more thought had been given to static TLS (judging from various comments, the KSE developers see FreeBSD/NVIDIA users as a minority, with no good indication that there are native, multi-threaded OpenGL applications requiring a thread-safe libGL to begin with; I assume that the latter at least is a valid observation).
