          If news about kernel mode setting, gallium, GEM, and DRI2 make me giddy, should I seek help?

                Should we really wait for DRI2 or for Galliun3D?

                  Can Phoronix try these bits out and write an article on how it works in a live system?

                    I've seen too much of that already, to the point I almost ignore it. I mean it's nice to read about it, but at this point I would like to see it all working (preferably included in distros by default) ... oh and add to the list at least OpenGL 2.0 support in mesa so that WINE+Games can finally work with open drivers

                        Did anybody have a chance to compile and to test these updates with like Compiz (at least, playing non-flickering Video, when Desktop Effects ON)?

                          From the blog entry:
                          It's not ready at all yet, as it suffers from a massive slowdown (expect to see one frame every minute )). Maybe i will have more stuff to blog about in coming weeks.
                          So I guess it's pointless to try Compiz with it in that state.

                            I wonder if Linux will stay in the "the OS for yesterday's hardware" state forever. At least for GPUs :P By the time something actually works, it's 6 generations behind. r300... Maybe in the year 2193 we'll see good support for the R7xx. But by then, we'll be experiencing Fallout 3 in real-life anyway so no need for it
