Anyone using ATI legacy video cards is stuck with the choice between sticking with Intrepid or upgrading to Jaunty and losing 3D acceleration. Open Source drivers suck. They do not provide 3D in a way that is remotely acceptable. Has there been any progress in helping those of us on the short end of the stick out of this dilemma? Will this problem be resolved when Karmic is released?

I'm running Jaunty on my HP laptop, I can use compiz with the radeon os driver.

But can you use Google Earth without it running unacceptably slow?
