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."

"and their CPUs right now are faster and cooler than AMD's - and if AMD release better CPUs, a CPU a bit slower and hotter will be a price I'll be willing to pay to get great opensource drtiver support."

Yeah I hate the closed source cpu drivers...

"CPU drivers"? What are you talking about?

I was talking about choosing Intel because that's the one way of getting a "Intel system" with an intel SATA/network/graphics/wireless controller.

With AMD CPUs you're stuck with ati or nvidia. Basically, buying Intel is the one way to get a hardware platform with oipen source drivers. Thats was what I was talking about.
