    Intel devs must wear sun glasses while working cause their driver already shines.

    Hopefully this will fix the intermittent mode-set problem I have on my laptop where the screen goes blank on mode-set during boot, and I have to restart a few times to get any display past mode-set.

    Default Thanks Intel!

    When I recently shopped for a new laptop, I only considered models shipping with Intel graphics due to Intel's stellar support of free software. When my friend recently bought his new laptop, he ended up getting an Intel-based system for the same reason.

    Thank you Intel for continuing to lead by example. I will happily throw money your way as a result.
