  1. [9fans] wiki (update): supported video hardware

    What non-monotheistic hardware does Plan 9 support these days?
    Starting with VGA hardware, let's cull the obsolete from the list.

    If you run any of the below-listed VGA gear under a current (4ed+)
    release, send an aux/vga dump (to me).

    Some weeks from now I will collapse and update the wiki list.

    Why? It seems like this will only make it harder
    for people with old hardware to tell if it is supported.
    For example, the SuperSavage IXC/16 is a very old
    card at this point, but if I were putting together a
    Plan 9 system I'd still be more than happy to throw
    one of those in.

    i think those are used by some of the T23s,
    which are respectable machines (at least for Plan 9)
    that can still be found at quite reasonable prices.
