X.Org 7.4, Mesa 7.1 In Ubuntu 8.10

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to binary drivers, the ATI and NVIDIA drivers are both packaged
| and found within Ubuntu's package repository. On the ATI side there is
| Catalyst 8.6 and on the NVIDIA side there are four different drivers -- this
| is because NVIDIA and ATI/AMD take different approaches to supporting their
| older hardware.

Notes from the Field: Mandriva 2009 KDE Alpha 2

,----[ Quote ]
| I choose to test the alpha 2 release with the KDE desktop because Mandriva
| 2009 will eventually ship using KDE 4.1, everone's favorite desktop. Alpha 2
| is also supposed to ship with the latest video drivers for both ATI and
| nVidia, which means that it should also support Compiz. Unfortunately alpha 2
| did not, even though the current version of Mandriva does, and quite well.
