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."

Are you jocking? Installing Nvidia propietary drivers is a pain in the ass. Nothing comes close to open source Intel drivers that get compiled and included along the rest of opensource drivers.


How is it a pain in the ass to install them? If your distro doenst have them in their reposotory, just download them, and just run the script! make sure you have the kernel-headers installed, and its just fine!

On the other hand, I havent experienced this sucking of nvidia drivers that some says... I think they work really well. They have legacy drivers for linux, witch at least provide hardware 3d for older cards. Configuring dualhead without editing a line in xorg.conf is pretty nice, I was actually surprised it worked that good with 'nvidia-settings'.
