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."

Are you jocking? Installing Nvidia propietary drivers is a pain in the ass. Nothing comes close to open source Intel drivers that get compiled and included along the rest of opensource drivers.


Sure they are a pain in the ass on Linux - but for that you need to blame Linus for his infinite wisdom about no stable kernel APIs.

FreeBSD and Solaris do not suffer from any such problems.
