    That should work with Firefox and the older Flash release at least.

    It's a bit off-topic.

    If today, I want to get a computer and use Open Source video drivers, what would be my best bet?
    I need flawless desktop experience (dual screen, KMS, etc...) and light gaming. I'm coding most of the time, but I may fire steam once in a while.

    I'm used to intel drivers, which work great. Would HD5200 be any good?

    I like the Nvidia 750 Ti, is there any chance that nouveau will make use of its potential in a relatively close future?

    AMD Radeon seems the way to go to get the best performances with OS drivers yet, but how is "desktop" support?

    Thanks.

    firefox + flash 11.2 = flash crash and firefox freeze

There's extremely uneven levels of performance with different models -- most of which run much slower than they should be.

    loooooooooooooooooool

    Intel IGP will do fine -- the recent ones can use up to 3 screens. On a desktop, you probably won't be able to get better than a HD 4600 except if you go for some special, small-form factor machines.

    Catalyst 14.1 isn't even able to play videos without crashing X. Setting render method to opengl helps but this doesn't rise the quality.

    I was not talking about Catalyst (rolling eyes don't fix problems, too).

    I can recommend pre-gcn radeon cards completely. I was totally happy with my Trinity (A10-5800k) until i bought Kaveri (yeah i knew it before :-P). Richland will do fine.
    Personally i don't want to support Intel. We need a vital market - we need AMD.

    Nice article comparing AMD Linux OSS driver's performance to their Catalyst drivers. I've been waiting for an article like this so that I could shit up a forum talking about Nvidia and Windows and Flash acceleration and shit.

    Gentlemen, please.

    With the open-source graphics driver stack found in the forthcoming release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Mesa 10.1 + Linux 3.13), the performance of the community-developed Radeon Gallium3D driver is now close to that of the official AMD Catalyst driver for recent generations of Radeon graphics cards. In several OpenGL tests the "RadeonSI" driver can even run 80% the speed of AMD's official Catalyst Linux driver.

    These are really, really good results. We shouldn't forget that 5 years ago, we were excited about drawing a triangle and immediately locking up on current hardware. Now the latest and greatest runs at almost the blob speed for common games, and at about 60-80% on the most challenging OpenGL workloads.

    The only missing piece of the puzzle is OpenCL support, does anyone know how that is doing?

    You think.. Look at this: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73739
