Intel are not really in the market for high end and dedicated graphic cards, rather intergreated video chipsets on motherboards and notebooks etc. 2D desktop support wise though intel do a marvilous job at this.

This is great news, considering the laptop I use is Intel (i915GM). Hopefully now it will boost performance for a better Linux experience. This made my day!

Wow I just realized when the parent posted this, I need to check the News forum more often!

All of these hardware manufacturers ought to know that by opening up the source of their software, they'll sell more sand.

If they keep the envelope tightly sealed, they fight the usual pointless battle with others who are doing the same. But, if they open it up, well, there are a lot of engineers out there who are not on Intel's payroll, nor any of their competitors'. It ought to be obvious by now that open collaboration sells more sand.

Its a good step from intel and it makes business sense now to make it open

Nice, but you should have added the following caveat:

Only if you have XOrg 7.1

The XOrg drivers will not work in lower releases.
