--- Comment #33 from Kevin Brace <kevinbrace at gmx.com> ---
I tend to belong to the camp that thinks that computers made in the past 6 to 7
years are adequate for everyday mundane tasks like browsing the Internet, and
there is no need to replace them until they break.
Unlike 10+ years ago, computers are not really getting faster every year.
Performance improvements have slowed down in the past 5 years, and this means
the user does not have to replace the computers too often.
In the case of VIA, they never worked with the FOSS community closely to
integrate their code into Linux kernel and Mesa.
As a result, I think they inconvenienced their users a lot.
All I am trying to do is to make the end user experience better than where it
used to be a few years ago.
Eventually, I will get around to adding various acceleration features to
improve the user experience down the road.
