    to fix the r128 mess / apply that damn patches from the bugtracker:
    http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9379 (not complete, but makes DRI somehow useable on rage128)
    http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11973
    http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4587 (--> http://cvsweb.xfree86.org/cvsweb/xc/...1=1.31&r2=1.32 (works fantastic, but patching and recompiling r128 and mesa everytime on a P3 just sucks...))

    I'd love switchable graphics support so I can at runtime shift from my Intel integrated to my ATI discrete graphics chip.

    Better 3D performance and accuracy in Intel's drivers, been running into some issues there.

    I'd like to see Kernel Mode Setting for the proprietary Nvidia driver.

    Ideally I'd like Nvidia to switch to supporting Nouveau on Linux, but that's not likely.

    That they improve to the point where a thread like this would have no sense. This is, parity with Windows.

    personally, i need more of R500 love:

    on windoze i'm able to play Half-Life 2 in 1280x800@high without AA and filtering with my "Mobility Radeon X2300" but on my Gentoo system it is only recently i was able to run... Jets'n'Guns.
    glxinfo says:

    OpenGL vendor string: DRI R300 Project
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R300 (RV515 718A) 20090101 TCL DRI2
    OpenGL version string: 1.5 Mesa 7.8-devel
    and, of course, i waiting for Nouveau heaven with full OpengGL 2.1 and accelerations.

    1. >=OpenGL2 for my r500 card (so I can finally drop fglrx)
    2. PowerManagement
    3. decent OSS r800 support so I can consider a ATi card for my next pc/notebook.
