Nice... the Nouveau project, which aims at creating Free Software drivers with accelerated 3D graphics for NVIDIA cards, is making some progress...
I'm looking forward to the day when I can replace "nv" with "nouveau" in my xorg.conf.
Update 2006-11-27: Yes, I know it's spelled "nouveau" (not "noveau"), which means "new" in French. Need more coffee ;-)
(via Pro-Linux News)
quite a few people have signed a pledge to give $10 to the project.
s/noveau/nouveau/ (which means new).
X.org 7.3 (which is supposed to land before the release of Ubuntu 7.10, aka Feisty+1) won't need any xorg.conf any more and hopefully NouVeau will have made some serious progress till then so you won't have to replace "nv" with "nouveau" :-P
BTW: it's NouVeau with an U, coming from the French nouveau which means new.
It's nouveau (new in french) not noveau ;)
