Interesting results (from your page) I get pretty much on-par
performance between opengl and d3d on win2k (athon xp2k+ and ti4200)

The linux performance is significantly slower, but having just read the
digest and tried a quick -nosound walk-around I think that's pretty much
where the difference occurs - a similar smooth feel in linux with
nosound that I'm getting with sound in w2k. Makes sense logically too,
since changing detail levels, resolution etc (even enabling 2x aa and
aniso and overclocking the card) wasn't having much impact on the performance (well, not as much
as I would have expected) suggesting that the bottleneck wasn't the
rendering...of course - the -nosound qualifiers in the flyby won't help
show this.
