    I'm not sure exactly what technologies are involved, I only read that Ubuntu would take away the Unity 2D option in 12.10.

    I guess I could still upgrade to 12.10, then, but install Xfce or KDE...

    I read that Unity 2d has been scrapped in 12.10, leaving the CPU with the task of helping with rendering things the GPU cannot handle? If this is correct, I guess upgrading will not be very suitable...

    I think the reasonable solution, at the moment, for people who need hardware accelerated video is to go with any of the previous distributions that are documented to work reasonably well.

    Cool, but Intel's page states that it works with Linux kernels 2.6.35 and 2.6.37?
    Is that enough for people here to be happy?

    Well, one big problem with restricted drivers is that they often don't work as expected.
    When I updated another laptop to 11.04, it crashed because Nvidia cards were not supported. A lot of work...

    I installed Xfce4 on my Nokia Booklet 3G, and it seems Youtube videos are even smoother than with Unity.
    The installation brought a Debian background to my GRUB page. :-(

    12.04 installed on its own partition plays Youtube videos much better than 11.10 with EMGD does. 360p doesn't work smoothly, but 240p is almost perfect. With 11.10, it was almost impossible to play...

    Ok.

    I'm not sure it's working according to my demands; the 11.10 clearly shows inferior performance than 11.04. 12.04 doesn't impress so far, either, but I guess running Wubi on a Nokia Booklet 3G...

    I'm not critisizing the open source driver, I just said that I was disappointed to see people arguing in what seemed like a heated manner about the preference for the one or the other driver.

    Ah. Well, so either I stay with 11.10 or switch to the open source driver?
    Could we expect reasonable performance from the open source driver when 12.04 launches?

    So, what is the outlook for Ubuntu 12.04?
    Will there be a functional EMGD driver?

    Has anyone tried out MeeGo on their GMA 500 hardware? Is it a useful Unix?

    I think it would be understandable if they limited their effort to making GMA500 run well on MeeGo, but since they're not even targeting that it seems like they're dipping their heads in the sand.
