This request seems to englobe open-sourcing the Drawbridge libOS layer, with stripping it for WinRT/UWP support only.

It’s on the backlog, but not currently planned.
We know many of you would like to be able to accelerate your numerical analysis code via CUDA/OpenCL, etc.
One thing to explore in the meantime is to try running your code in Windows. Windows actually has very powerful GPU-acceleration capabilities and you may well find that much of your existing code may well work already or require trivial effort to port to Windows itself.
in the meantime, bear with us, and UPVOTE THIS ISSUE if you care (please don’t create another duplicate ask – that doesn’t help us prioritize asks).
Please no CUDA. ProjectA had passthrough for OpenGL ES, please add OpenCL and maybe desktop OpenGL. Making the user side that talks to /dev/adss (now /dev/lxss) open is the best way.
