The background of our team initially varied from experienced Linux advocates to complete Linux newbies, but we all gained new experience with Linux and the many open-source tools available to its users. Particularly with regard to accelerated OpenGL-based graphics, what started as a low-end alternative to high-priced graphics servers continues to outperform the big iron for our applications.
