Intel's Linux drivers are a lot slower than Windows drivers. Then again, they support more OpenGL extensions than Windows drivers.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Obama administration has denied more FOIA requests than Bush administration:
I haven't done any benchmarking, but it is hardware accelerated. It also uses OpenGL Shading Language.
Most of the tutorials are outdated and won't work in modern OpenGL core profile. Avoid tutorials that use glBegin(), glVertex(), glLight(), gluPerspective(), glMatrixMode(), glVertexPointer(), or learn just enough from them that you can create a context and draw stuff in Linux. After that you can adapt Windows-specific tutorials's code to Linux. I liked these tutorials:

Their current Linux drivers are not good. I cannot use VBOs or shaders without crashing my system, and I have X4500HD which is supposed to be fast and support SM4. The Mesa driver implements OpenGL 2.0 and GLSL 1.10, both of which are outdated. Performance is also slower than in Windows.

My Logitech wireless mouse using proprietary protocol does this too.
In this case the error was evenly distributed, because it was caused by bad UI design. The voters could pull off the card before they finished their voting process.
I suspected as much but when I checked out the zip, it's actually got all the level data there.
But their licence is not the same as the source's.
I wrote earlier that we are programming a MMORPG at the university. We now use Python and Panda3D to develop it. We demoed it at our university's lobby to masses two weeks ago and it gained interest.
I start timing my bootup when I hit the power button and I stop timing when wireless authenticates with the router. Currently my bootup time is 31 s. I'm using Eee PC 701 and Xubuntu 8.10 with custom kernel from kernel.org. I hope to see better bootup time with Xubuntu 9.04 and ext4.
