Intel "The Intel 965GM Express Chipset represents the first mobile product that implements fourth generation Intel graphics architecture. Designed to support advanced rendering features in modern graphics APIs, this chipset includes support for programmable vertex, geometry, and fragment shaders. Extending Intel's commitment to work with the X.org and Mesa communities to continuously improve and enhance the drivers, support for this new chipset is provided through the X.org 2.0 Intel driver and the Mesa 6.5.3 releases. These drivers represent significant work by both Intel and the broader open source community."

After being a long time supported of AMD

I think that my attitude is going to change. Although I consider Intel as an monopolist, their support for FLOSS seems to be a few orders greater than AMD's. After AMD/Ati merger they have promised to open up their drivers, yet they didn't even get their binary drivers right until today. In contrast, Intel provides decent support for their wireless drivers, video chip sets etc and they do it almost on par with Windows equivalents in both quality and time.
