Under Linux, the Sandy Bridge support is now excellent if pulling in the latest components (namely the Linux kernel, xf86-video-intel, and Mesa) and only continues to be improved over time with advancements like their new driver acceleration architecture.

        but depending upon whether Canonical plans to pull in DRM changes from the 3.1 kernel to their 3.0 Oneiric kernel, we could see poor "out of the box" support for the Intel Ivy Bridge hardware at launch.
