I'm definitely interested in this one for the glide support but just
haven't had time to set it up.  I haven't been able to get other glide
patches/builds to work properly under Linux.

OpenGL 3 and shader support is nice. However, being bit of a purist
snob, I don't mind running most old games in their original state. A
very long time ago I used http://www.zeckensack.de/glide/ as the Glide
OpenGl wrapper in special Win98/2k/XP configurations for Wing Commander
III/IV/Propecy.  It was spiffy. Why 3dfx support?  back when Glide was a
hot API, I simply could not afford a voodoo card.  When I could finally
afford one, 3dFx was dead and many glide games were in the bargain bin
or gone.
