    Suspend to RAM and to disk (hibernate) has been working for me in Ubuntu and the nVidia binary drivers since Ubuntu 7.04. It still works today (Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64 nVidia GTX260, driver version 195.30), no issues at all.

      The way it's meant to be supported

      Good point, except it isn't really "parity with Windows" but rather just "the way any hardware must be supported if it's manufacturer values his customers", simply because if you get screwed, you're not likely to be coming back for more. As far as I'm concerned, that's just the way it is

        That would be awesome, actually.

          I couldn't see it being any good for OpenGL though. I think I'll pass on Direct 3D for Linux.

            From the OS ATI drivers, I would love them to have the power saving capabilities of fglrx.

            From the FGLRX stand point, I would like to see XvBA released to the mainstream.

                I've been slapping this together over the past few days.

                  Getting all parts of nouveau (kernel, drm, mesa,...) into releases so that distros can pick it up. Even if it remains beta quality, at least it wouldn't be such a megahassle to try it out.

                    ATI can dump their binary blob as the open source ATI driver is rapidly moving towards blissful endings.
                    Nvidia better keep working on that sucker cause there is going to be problems that reverse engineers just can't ever get around.

                      That's the point.

                        This is completely unrealistic, but
                        * All graphics cards ever to have existed and graphics that will ever exist with fully(yes fully ) optimized gallium drivers + KMS that use the (completed) x11 state tracker for exa accel and use xf86-video-modesetting for generic modesetting and of course the docs.
                        * A perfect implementation of wine that has no flaws.
                        That's it.

                        It looks possible

                          Unless it has full KMS support for my Tandy 1000ex and it's 16 color CGA adapter I'm not interested.

                            HD4870 to play games on WINE at least as good as a 20 year old Nvidia card.

                              I've lost faith in my post getting through the moderation queue.

                              Okay so here's what you do:
                              1) go to the cgit interface on fdo which is cgit dot freedesktop dot org
                              2) scroll down to ~jsindholt/mesa
                              You'll see my VERY basic implementation of a D3D9 state_tracker for G3D

                                At the moment I would like to see

                                [AMD ATI Open Source]
                                1. Some kind of working video decoding support by GPU which would ease CPU's bourdain
                                2. Dynamic power scaling, voltages & clocks, also nice tool to tweak these values by user like me, i like undervolting more than default values <3

                                [AMD ATI Fglrx]
                                1. KMS support
                                2. Super efficient video decoding which owns Nvidia's VPDAU, lets put UDV2 in good use!
                                3. Better dynamic power consumption management, possibility to track how/when GPU & memory -clocks & voltages are scaled down
                                4. Better overclocking support
                                5. Bluray playback, and yes also with DRM enabled dics

                                [NVDIA]
                                1. Nvidia helping Nouveau team by releasing specs
                                2. Power consumption, look at AMD ATI -case
                                3. See bluray stuff from AMD ATI case -case
