It could also be that not too many use these advanced features of OpenGL
on Linux? Shaders etc are at least in my mental book considered to be
advanced topics. It could also be that fairly many at least on Linux stick
with older drivers (like 66.11) that work, and upgrade only if there is
some real good reason for it. I think I still use some of the 5xxx series
of drivers on my development system and so far all bugs and cases of bad
rendering have unfortunately been in my own code. :)
