    Phoronix: Intel Continues Work On Ivy Bridge Linux Graphics Support

    Intel's current-generation "Sandy Bridge" processors continue to sell incredibly well and perform phenomenally relative to AMD's current offerings and Intel's previous-generation hardware. Under Linux, the Sandy Bridge support is now excellent if pulling in the latest components (namely the Linux kernel, xf86-video-intel, and Mesa) and only continues to be improved over time with advancements like their new driver acceleration architecture.

    but depending upon whether Canonical plans to pull in DRM changes from the 3.1 kernel to their 3.0 Oneiric kernel, we could see poor "out of the box" support for the Intel Ivy Bridge hardware at launch.
    Not everyone is stupid enough to use Ubuntu.

    I think that you would do well to leave the flame. I can't stand Gnome-shell and love Unity. You see me signing on and calling everyone a moron for using Gnome-shell?
