Wow

I want one of these.

Though while I'm usually not one to complain, little things like this from small companies do frighten me just a little when it's a closed driver because you never know are they always going to have a business case to support Linux? Do they even have one now? Even if it is only $60 for me I wouldn't want to get one only to have the drivers fail a few years down the line because it's not compatible anymore.

Meanwhile, the application support might actually be a huge plus here in open-source land. If they want Blender support, and their customers want Blender support, they can add it and so can we.

Which is pretty cool.

I gotta say, when it comes to hardware support and cool toys, open source can be really practical.

Now if only IRIX was open and it could use USB<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:(

P.S. Motif rocks the cock!
