Another option will be to use the built in VTK support that should ship with 
DIVERSE 3.0. DIVERSE is similar to CAVElib and VRjuggler, but comes with 
several key features including device independance, networked shared memory, 
and collaborative tools. It supports IRIX, Linux, Windows, and OS X.

Unfortunately, the DIVERSE info on sourceforge is outdated at the moment as we 
push towards the new release, but will be updated by SIGGRAPH 2003 (July
