The 1600sw i'm looking at comes with a Number Nine card
(Revolution 7.)  So i can't use it on my existing SGI boxes
without an additional $500 expenditure and i can't use it on
my linux box unless i ditch Quake3/UT 2003.... bummer.  Is the
Number Nine card fast for 2D?  What was the PITA with X, mode
