    Nice progress Intel Looks like the performance gap between Windows and Linux is closing for these drivers.

    Certainly app workarounds in the gl lib are just wrong.
    Some, but not all, sadly.

    Recently there was the NVIDIA graphics comparison under Windows 7 and Linux providing new data at how the cross-platform NVIDIA driver is comparing between Ubuntu 12.10, Kubuntu 12.10, and Windows 7 Pro. Aside from Ubuntu's Unity desktop with Compiz impairing the performance, the results were competitive. Next up now is a look at Intel Sandy Bridge and Intel Ivy Bridge graphics when comparing the performance of the three operating systems.

    Come on, Michael. You're including Kubuntu, but not the new Gnome Shell spin? By using defaults, GS has been the fastest of the major desktops, and since you are looking at performance, that seems something worth looking at.

    They fixed many in Heaven 3.0 so that it runs quite nice (visually) on radeon OSS. But Sanctuary and Tropics was not updated in recent years so they are quite broken.

    I still get very dark rendering and syntax errors in shaders without drirc. That's UH3.0 on SNB. I guess other mesa drivers are the same or worse as shader compiler is mostly shared.

    While I will agree that the Linux Intel devs are doing _awesome_ work and I'm glad that they are moving ahead so quickly, note that closing the gap with the Intel Windows GL driver is like a race car closing the gap with the second-to-last car in the race.
