Not at all a joke. I know right where on ATI's website where they say the
3D API for the mach64/mach128 cards is propriatery and private. On the
other hand, I recently received email from ATI's marketing department
which insinuates that the 'developers' (Xfree and/or OpenGL/Mesa
developers) have the 'programming information' (3D API documentation)

Can anyone confirm ATI's opening their 3D implimentation to development?
