It'll be interesting to see Intels next generation of hardware and how it will stack up against Ati and Nvidia; if it is even 80% of what Nvidia and Ati can do with their proprietary setup, I'd be happy camper purchasing their gear.


It's about time someone brought up Intel!
Lets not discount what they bring to the table, which is quite a bit. http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/index.htm
