      EXA also works great on my 6800gt with nouveau. Compositing is so much faster than with the blob!

        So to recap,

        NVidia bypasses X, Intel rewrites X, and AMD has good hardware.

          Yeah, basically

          People complain about ATI's drivers a lot, but they're the only ones that actually follow standards. Intel rewrites them constantly, and Nvidia ignores them completely. I wish the devs could finally make some decisions and implement stuff.

            The problem then seems that the standards don't always seem to work, that's why Intel keeps re-writing them and nvidia keeps ignoring them .

                I'm getting sick of all this, really. It's been less than a week that I caught myself thinking, "Hey, maybe with the next Ubuntu release, it's time to ged rid of manually enforcing XAA in xorg.conf, and move over towards EXA, which has been on everyone's roadmap for ages! YAY!", and now THIS?

                I sure do hope implementing whatever FSCKING new-on-the-block acceleration architecture of the day does not take as long as we've seen it take with EXA. Because if it does, I might as well go back to fbterm with GNU screen, and get rid of all this annoying X11 shite for the next few years...
