I never said "ditch Linux development", I said "don't let people use the (perceived)
problemsthatdesktop Linuxhas with a lack of good OpenGL driver support as an
excuse tohold backthenecessaryremoval of support for non-accelerated backends
which areblockingimplementation ofimportant modern rendering features."

Please don't oversimplify what I say into strawman versions.  That's a serious pet
peeve ofmine.

I wholeheartedly disagree with Mason. Ditching Linux development is a
naive approach to SDL 1.3 advancement. SDL 1.3 is Linux's hope for better
OpenGL support with SDL, and potentially its hope for more desktop gamers.
