    I agree. I mean, ok nice at list you will see something on your screen. But defining it great when the reality is that this driver is almost useless, meaning you cannot use the hardware you own....... is plain wrong imho.

    Having an open source *official* and with *a lot of work going on to fill the gaps* for the new Intel SoCs is what I define great.
