I'm playing Diablo 3 with wine+nouveau right now, at fluid ~30 fps @1680x1050 +AA ... if I could raise the clocks on my GPU I could even play with high quality effects & shadows. I don't notice that much visual difference to playing on Windows though.

Nice. How did you get the 32 bit mesa/nouveau stuff installed? By hand, or distro (which) multiarch?

yeah, you do. i haven't seen any actual graphics developer post anything like what you've said, and i'm very sure you're underestimating the amount of effort required to get things functioning at all on modern graphics cards.

Coffee Vs. Chamomile
Ok, I went some Chamomile Tea with a dollup of honey. I appologize for the off color remark. I do realise there is a ton of effort going on. One can only hope soonish things will get to a "good state". Lack of 3D does not overly impact my getting Work Done for the most part. I have been wanting to get into some Blender at some point, but not right at the moment. I have only scratched the surface of Blender briefly. So, I will wait and see what is what about mid-year 2013.
Have a good one,
