Well GLX is pretty much the only renderer available on Linux. Even SDL-GL 
uses GLX as a backend on Linux when it's available. Furthermore, other 
platforms (Solaris, IRIX) are mostly GLX-only since SDL-GL results on 
these platforms are less than satisfactory so don't drop GLX too fast.. :)

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars - on stars where no human race is
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.       - Robert Frost
