Thanks.  This time I received your archive.  I will
have a look at it.

Just for your and other users info:  we have already begun implementing
GLW API along with GLX API in XWIN server.  This will allow to display
OPENGL/X application, and use Win32 native OpenGL32 for hardware

A lot of hack is going on here.  Peter is working hard to bring
xwin X_server in quality comparable to Exceed.  Looks like
in a month or so we might achive this goal... having a
high quality Open Source X-server for Win32.
