this is probably also directed at me. I am reading  the archive of this list 
since December just to stay up to date about those new Intel graphics 

I subscribed now only in order to answer that message (I faked the mail 
header, because I am missing the original message, so hopefully this reply 
will be sorted correctly).

Indeed, because of the open sourced drivers I have recommended the new Intel 
graphics chips to quite a lot of people and I am really looking forward to 
those high-end graphics chips that are planned, hoping that the drivers will 
be open sourced as well. I would be probably one of the first buying one of 
those graphics cards. I think I do not need to explain why I am unhappy with 
the current situation on high-end graphics cards.
