Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu With the flood of ARM-based netbooks and tablets upon us (keep watch outside, the flood can come any day now, promise!), Linux distributions are trying to be ready for The Great Coming of ARM. A problem with ARM hardware, according to Jamie Bennett, an Ubuntu Mobile Developer working for Canonical, is that many 3D drivers are non-Free; this poses problems for Ubuntu's Netbook Remix UI.

The ARM SoC I'm working on (by Samsung) has open specs for all components, incl. 3D acceleration.

Then you can provide links to those specs, right? What 3D does it use? Obviously not PowerVR, not Mali, not Imageon...
