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."

So this is the source of global warming. Mount Doom it all makes sense now ;)

Also sorry that you encountered a zealot. I personally still use Windows but my next computer is going to be a dual-boot Mac and then I will probably turn my current computer into a play machine to test Linux/BSD on ;)

Since I'm buying a Mac I guess I will be using Intel chipsets/graphics in all likelihood because I'm probably going to be buying a MacBook after the release of Mac OS 10.5.3.
