I've came across this related to the AMD/ATI fglrx 8.36.5 driver:

I'm quoting:
"In this driver are two new files: /esut.a/ and / These are 
new X.Org modules for the fglrx driver and specifically involve 
TexturedVideo and OpenGL ES"

might be worth looking



thanks, thats interesting.. it confuses more, as i was moment ago sure that it has to be something about hardware architecture.. but apperantly its not

i wonder now what kind of stuff OpenGL ES is supposed to be used for? if ES is just a smaller/faster version of OpenGL, than i want it, even if its only a subset of OpenGL ... is therea way then to run ES apps from console in full-screen, without X?

actually i know a little bit, as i understand ES doesnt have glBegin and glEnd calls, so i believe its definitively something about more speed
