    out of staging in which release?

    However, this Intel Medfield graphics support was added to the Intel GMA500 "Poulsbo" DRM driver, which was merged and moved out of staging in the brand-new Linux 3.2 kernel.
    I believe that this driver will be moved out of staging in the Linux 3.3 kernel.

      Charlie Demerjian doubts Intel will ever release Medfield. Asus, Dell, Acer; they all got burned on poulsbo. They aren't going to make that mistake again. Intel won't be able to give away Medfield for free. Intel's problem is they can't tell the truth and admit that Medfield will never be sold.

      Suppose Intel does have a good graphics driver, ha ha ha, Medfield still has no advantage over Arm. The one advantage they had was bringing Windows to the dance. But Intel went for a fling with Meego and now MS is in bed with Arm. Intel will be paid back for their trasgressions.

      Michael will have a lot less anguish when he grasps the truth.
