3D News, GL, DirectX "Fedora started out by shipping the Nouveau DDX driver, then turned to kernel mode-setting support that has matured and is used by default with the current Fedora 12 release. With Fedora 13, Red Hat is again shipping with the latest free software NVIDIA bits, which now includes 3D support. Thanks to an update to the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package, there is 3D/OpenGL support enabled for NVIDIA hardware. This 3D support is coming from Nouveau's Gallium3D driver for most of the NVIDIA graphics hardware while there is also a classic Mesa driver for old NV hardware that recently came about. Yes, there is finally a deployed Nouveau-NVIDIA Gallium3D driver that will be easily deployable out in the wild with Fedora 13."

but KDE performances are awful, it's unsusable. Compositing turned on or off.

Well, in terms of shipping with Fedora, it's replacing the old 'nv' driver, which was considerably worse. So, it's still a big improvement, even if it's not yet matching the performance of NVidia's binary driver.

No idea who voted you down. If your statement reflects the current performance, it deserves an "Informative" vote.

However, there's still some time until Fedora 13 will be released. Report that in Red Hat's bug tracker and with some luck Red Hat's Nouveau devs will be able to fix the performance bugs in time.
