The drivers do GL really well, too... Even on my crappy Diamond Viper
V550, Quake3 is very playable.

Unfortunately, the xserver isn't very stable and sucks up memory like no
other, so I've ended up just starting it up when I feel like playing
Quake... Anytime a process can take 110% of my memory, it's got to go.
