I'm probably going to write a free 8514/S3 driver for X this summer, and I'd
be interested in hearing from anyone else who's working on the same thing,
so we can avoid duplicated effort.

Actually I did such a beast - but it's only commercial work. I would not
recommend you doing this thing, unless you are really good at X. It took
me quite while to make it stable and fast. A starting point could be the
X11R4 IBM 8514/A server. But then again this guy is so buggy that it makes
sence to start from scratch (read I tried this and gave up).

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
