Im not being critical. Its just clever product specs. Givent that the
agp slot is a pci slot, would it be possible to have 2x of the said
agp slots, thus allowing for two agp video cards.
There arent any really bleeding edge games for linuxppc, i wouldnt
doubt that well see binaries soon. Unreal Tournament has always been great
to linux, and quake has usually as well.
