Intel 60% of graphics market. Intel drivers work well with the current composited desktops, unlike say "Aero"

60% of *new* desktops, perhaps.

I agree that Intel's (relatively) new interest in Linux drivers is highly encouraging.

In fact, over the weekend I ordered an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 based wifi mini-pci card for my laptop to replace the Broadcom based one, simply on general principle.

(I also sent an email to Broadcom's local sales rep explaining Broadcom's poor support of Linux and why I had chosen to avoid their products in the future.)

So I am totally with you on Intel.

I expect that in a year or so, I just might be ready to claim a victory of sorts for Compiz/Beryl over Aero.

Just not today.

BTW, do Intel chipsets really not work with Aero? *Ouch* for Microsoft. As you say, Intel is an important supplier.
