> *) Graphics support: I'll talk to the X11 devs about including the wine

Most xorg devs aren't a big fan of pbuffers but they are part of the GLX 1.3 spec which drivers want to support these days. Some drivers are considering to just fail on pbuffer creation. Encourage them to offer pbuffer support on some visuals/fbconfigs. A lot of windows apps rely on their presence including Wow in opengl32 mode and lots of other (older) programs.

Psst! Geheimtipp: Online Games kostenlos spielen bei den GMX Free Games!
