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've been entirely Linux since 1997. But I've been a Unix admin since 1988, so I had a bit of a head start.

Actually, it was PlatformAgnostic who encountered that zealot. Which is not to imply that I have *not* encountered them. I've even *been* one upon occasion in moments of excessive zeal. Though I try not to overdo.

But you are right that it would be best to focus upon the real issues... like how in the world are we going to get Sauron to cut down on the release of greenhouse gasses and unburned hydrocarbons? And considering the air conditioning requirements for that (no doubt poorly insulated) tower of his, flourocarbon emmsions are probably an additional issue; He's likely still on R-22.

You wanna take him the notice of noncompliance? ;-)
