AFAIK Hyperion are supposed to do the 3D-support for all
"SNAPped" platforms.


That's what I meant.

AFAIK the deal was also that making SNAP run on PPC was done by the company itself so Hyperion can just add it in and start work on 3D.

I haven't really looked at what they're offering, but I'm assuming it's available as an XFree86 driver, from what you guys are rolling on about.

The best use for SciTech's products have, previous to this new embeddable gig, been in the corporate realm.  There's little point for them with XFree86 on your personal machine (presuming your personal machine already works properly), but imagine being in charge of an office environment with heterogenous hardware- or even worse, hardware that's homogenous with a poorly-supported chipset?

Whats wrong with XFCE4?

It's very much like the specs for AOS4's Workbench with Dockies.

Heh.  Didn't mean to take this thread OT as well; should've used the sillier 'crazy' emoticon.  I just found it CDE-like and not particularly groundbreaking.  I was also thinking of 3, so yes, nevermind, 4 is a totally different beast.

Now if I only had the skill and time to turn DFM into something reasonable..

The ROX Filer is quite a good fie manager.  Better than nautilus and the horrible konqueror.
