I was excited when I read last month that Mobility would be supported. Oy!
in my ubuntu 7.10 didn't work
in my suse 10.3 it works fine (i do not use compiz)
in my gentoo it works fine (included all issues we all know: slow aiglx scroll, high CPU hunger, etc).

by the way any news about next release?
