        I'm more interested in Linux 4.9, laptop energy efficiency optimizations (Intel and MSI) and better Optimus PRIME? (so interested in MESA and Xorg/Wayland). Linux 4.8 seems more boring than 4.9.

            So far, working great.

                Unfortunately, I'm stilling having no luck getting Metro 2033 Redux to run.
                Other games saw a big boost in performance with Mesa 12.1.
