    Phoronix: Gallium3D Panfrost Driver Can Now Handle Running The GNOME Shell Desktop

    Considering how resource intensive modern Linux desktops are particularly on OpenGL for compositing, it's quite an achievement that the Panfrost open-source Gallium3D driver for Arm Mali Bifrost/Midgard hardware can now run the GNOME Shell...

    Atheros is only good for 802.11N isn't it? Last I knew AC driver support was no where near as decent. I think there's two vendors with drivers for some of their AC chipsets in the kernel, MediaTek was one?

    Nice, need to get back to my old Firefly RK3328 (... realistically will happen when I manage to put my kids in hibernation mode).
