I'm on it.
and hopefully I need reply from jbernardo....
now if we could, we should sort our requirements in order to create such a "TODO List of us"... for various talents, like umm... "for Intel", "For Ubuntu Development Team", "For X-edgers Team" and "For Us". in this job, I think we sould follow the dicision of observer, right ?

Is it just my imagination, or does the latest version of Chrome (updated just now) now run flash (Youtube 480p at least) in full-screen without stuttering? YAY!
Other embedded video using Flash from news sites such as Reuters/Yahoo works better - although still not quite smooth.
Tested with latest EMGD drivers in Mavrick using XFCE 4.8.2
..non-POR, ROI distribution, IP concerns involved.. what are they speaking about?
They made a mistake when signed a contract with PowerVR and this should be not a matter of end user.
I bought a netbook with an Intel chipset and I pretend support, nothing transcendental.
Linux support doesn't mean support only for Intel "premium" customers.
Less words and more facts.
Thanks so much (Glad it was not just my imagination running away from me yet again). And really appreciate the teams' hard work on the drivers. This is getting better day by day! Oh, one thing, does anybody know how to get Minitube working with vaapi? (At the moment all I get is a black screen, although sound works fine).
So basically, Kirk seems to be speaking "managerialese" and we are speaking "technicalese".
I guess the Intel techs, if they are at least minimally competent (and no reason to think otherwise) could supply us at least the kernel modules and 2D driver fully open, since they've done that already once. And they could put their "oh so precious" IP encumbered code in a lib or driver, which could be called from a open source driver. They only need to document their code, identify IP encumbered stuff, and publish the stuff they can't open as well documented binaries.
But that would need convincing the manager types, who still think on ROI and can't understand the cost of all the bad will they have generated with the poulsbo driver debacle.
