I hope with the advent of 3DxWare 10 (Beta) open source multimedia creators who are using applications like Vue, Pov Ray, K 3D, Ogre, Blender etc. can expect some great help. Few months back I was trying hard to work on Blender with 3 D mouse but it was really hard for me to configure it.
It was really good luck as one of the my friends who is into hardware troubleshooting, configured it for me.
But I was still not satisfied with the performance.
However, I have recently tried this Beta version and it has worked fine. There are occasions when my computers hangs and I have to restart it. I wonder if it happens because of the 3 D Mouse or lack of resources made available by my Lenove Y 500 Celeron Note Book.
