    Kudos to Kevin, again. These chips were fairly frequent in use in low end / office computers at the time, even some thin clients.

    Shame there's no 3D support, then again LLVMPipe on a Core 2 Duo may be faster.

    This warms my heart

    This hardware is still perfectly suitable for many use cases.

    Not necessarily, sometimes people just use workarounds and live with the broken experience.

    Very newsworthy changes:
    Enable SISGAMMARAMP macro on X.Org X Server
    Fix for xf86InterceptSigIll() discontinuation in X Server 1.20
    Do not call xf86DisableRandR() for X Server 1.20
