    Phoronix: It's Looking Like The Intel Gallium3D "ILO" Driver Will Be Laid To Rest

    Seems proper to me. Unmaintained and rusty areas need to be X'd

    Quality is vital

      Rather expected tbh. I've always seen ILO as more of a proof-of-concept that Intel hardware can utilize gallium as opposed to an actual production driver.

      Last time I tried it, it had issues with windows randomly disappearing into nothing but a border on the desktop.

          Your distro surely never built that driver.
