    What a nice surprise!
    I would like to see this kind of testing (experimental) packages in Ubuntu.
    So there it would be so simple as installing one package to replace another to switch between stable or experimental version for testing.

    This is great news, nouveau is coming around at the right time . We really gotta give props to those devs though, what they've managed to do so far with so little is very impressive.

    I tested it today (I use rawhide), and, well, it's there, but not quite usable. Kwin composite start, but turn the display white (but wobbly work! At least, looking at the shadow showing for a few seconds. Once set to use XRender instead of OpenGL, it work much better, but 2D lag and have repaint delay in Qt4 apps (nvidia blob run fine).

    Although r300g might show up in F14, right now r600g basically doesn't even exist. There has been some code already written like winsys but it's not part of Gallium yet. Given the time the development of r300g has taken, the first bits of r600g will probably be usable in 2011 and the driver shipped in 2012 (hopefully).

    i think you are a bit to pessimistic on that one.
