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."

Mesa GL doesn't even come close to working properly with OpenGL games like Quake and DoomIII. Sorry but open source video drivers are just junk!

I don't think open-source drivers are junk. For example I'm using open-source drivers with my Radeon 9200, and they work just fine, and yes, Quake does run just fine! Beryl works and all such, no problems there. They're very stable, fast and so on, and they support _almost_ everything the closed-source ones do. The only thing that needs improving is the TV-out support, but even that works in 800x600 resolution with the correct patch..
