Think I've got a 7600 hanging around somewhere... I'll dig it up and
give this a shot.

What's the status on accelerated 3D drivers in virtual machines?
Wasn't there some VMGL thing going on 2007ish they were trumpeting? I
know VirtualBox and VMWare have some sort of GL acceleration; and I
remember some interesting patches floating around for KVM... Is there
something fundamental missing? OpenGL 1.x only?

I prefer Ubuntu, and it'd be nice to be able to mess with Wayland on
VMWare Player or something without much in the way of host video
hardware restrictions.

Got a bunch of AMD 780Gs with maverick; love to see them running wayland early.
At least if not a VM; support for the cheap $300 AMD rigs would
probably draw in some more folks.
