    well it's still totally broken on SNB included in dell vostro 360, so things are not yet stellar.

    also, the amount of SNB related bugs in general is a bit worrying.

    I don't use intel but I am very glad to see the progress they have been making and the efforts they put into open source. Last time I checked though, wasn't nearly all intel related products faster on Linux than on Windows? With this performance increase, it looks like the Windows devs have got some catching up to do.
