I gave it a try and they have done wonders with the boot time and with the nouveau drivers, the animations in GNOME-Shell are even smoother than my Ubuntu installation with the propietary NVidia drivers, but I still have the problem that it doesn't detects my Broadcom wireless card, this is something Ubuntu, Mynth, OpenSuse and others do, just not Fedora, but I'll definitive google for a way to install it.


Nice.

Nouveau never ceases to amaze me too. I'm very impressed with it.

I find it impressive how I can run Nexuiz with nouveau and play it at full speed with native/high resolution on a 23" LED, or when I boot Linux and I get a full composited desktop without installing the blob.

Nouveau already supports Wayland and KMS as well, which I find it very nice, I can't wait for the day I can use Nouveau/Wayland/KDE/GS. ;)

I've noticed recently in #nouveau the developers already talk about adding video decoding (VDPAU) support. Which is the only thing I miss.

I think it's impressive what they have achieved in such a short time, considering that Nouveau is all reverse engineered work.

My hats off to the Nouveau developers.

Last Nvidia chip I used was nForce 430 which was GeForce 6100. Previous to this I used Chrome Graphics. Then I moved to ATI HD 3200. I even used a high-end off-board card from the HD 4xxx series. Unfortunately I had to sell it. I gave ATI the preference because of the radeon open source driver, but then nouveau appeared.

The way you're saying, would you advise to drop ATI in favour of a new low-end/mid-end Nvidia chip?
