Hi Xavier

Yes, that is quite an improvement. Admittedly the driver situation for
the VIA cards is a bit complex, which can be quite confusing.

Personally I would restructure the page about different drivers
http://www.openchrome.org/trac/wiki/About so that it focuses on two
drivers: the closed source drivers from VIA, and the openchrome
driver. Those are the two that matter, and everything else can be
treated as a footnote. BTW, I was never able to find the "open source"
via driver. And when I follow the link from the wiki, I end up on a
Chinese page with all weird characters (404?).

Oh, and talking from the user perspective, the vesa driver should also
be listed as an option.

I would also like to see some information on AMD64. With typical
systems coming with 4 GB of RAM, the move to AMD64 is about to happen.
As far as I understand, the VIA driver does not support AMD64, while
all open source drivers work reasonably well.
