This may be of interest to people. It shows the drivers changing and
in some cases improving.

It also shows the danger of non-free drivers as well. These drivers
support old versions of X and not the latest (so I can't use easily on
Debian Unstable). They don't yet support ailgx and of course you are
limited to Intel/AMD platforms. The ATI driver drops support for old
cards too...

Now if Intel would mark their cards faster as they have supported the
community by making open source drivers.
