    My desktop machine is on a Radeon 9500, I think that was the fastest fanless card I could find at the time. I was surprised to see HD4xxx AGP cards being produced, thought about upgrading, but haven't bothered.

    Yes, I use RV350 (AGP Radeon 9600) and RV370 (PCI-E Radeon X300) every day on the same machine and I still use it for open source GL games, too.
    I know other people here with R200 and R300 still using these cards for desktop effects or games and the same as I, they don't have an option to upgrade PC by just a graphic card as new (or even not so new) cards don't work on our hardware.

    My Lenovo T60 Notebook has an Buildin X1400 these Notebooks are used quite a lot, and the usability with the r300g is amazing

    Heh... An X800's a pretty decent part when you get to brass tacks- it's just not the same class as an X1900XT (Oh, how I wish I'd have had budget to have bought one of those on employee discount when I was working for AMD...) or any of the subsequent parts.

    I have a new laptop because of work, but my desktop, which was my only computer until a few months ago, has a Radeon 9600 (r350)

    What's the status of r300g Hyper-Z? In the wiki is marked as MOSTLY (gallium), however it's disabled by default and when forcing it with RADEON_HYPERZ=1 it shows random patches in sauerbraten and other games (this is with my RV530, mesa from git, kernel 2.6.36).
    Afaik it's disabled by default because you can only use it in one program at a time in pre-r600.

    I think so

    I'd prefer to see it properly fixed in mesa .

    However it's OK with me leaving it with MOSTLY. Also I just added S3TC status to the wiki.
