3D News, GL, DirectX "Nouveau is a community project that is working on producing open-source 3D display drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. Nouveau is not affiliated with Nvidia Corp and is an X.Org project. While this project is still far from being completed, for this holiday special we are sharing some of our first thoughts on this project from our experience thus far. We would like to make it very clear, however, that the Nouveau driver is no where near completed and still has a great deal of work ahead for the 3D component. This article today will also hopefully shed some light on the advancements of this project so far."

These guys are heroes. I wish them success in their project.

I am considering a new computer purchase. At the moment I am only considering Intel based motherboards with onboard intel graphics so that I can get 3D acceleration with open source drivers. If they are successful a whole broader range of hardware becomes acceptable.
