      Further prolly. There's some dicey stuff with textures to be able to do compiz I think, which may cause some issues with the newer cards. I recall they had some difficulty getting compiz to work on r300s a while ago, but that was before docs were released.

      I'll take a wild guess and say compiz may work in a month or two. I'm hoping for a fully featured OpenGl 2.1 driver by the end of the year!
