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."

"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."

A stable in-kernel API does nothing but hinder further development in terms of new features and bugfixes. Please read Grek KH's response on this for more info, called "stable_kernel_nonsense.txt" in the kernel source's Documentation directory. (It's also available online at his site: http://www.kroah.com/log/linux/stable_api_nonsense.html )
