RE[2]: 3.0 or 3.3?

Yea, but full 3.3 support is many years away, full 4.1 is probably 5 years away.

Once 3.0 is completed in Mesa, I wouldn't be surprised if it could get to 3.3 in six months. 4.1 within a year or two (it requires graphics cards which barely exist right now, anyway). 2.x -> 3.0 is by far the largest hurdle.
