>I dislike nvidia for my own use.

Well, I don't like many things: Apple (but I have to use it sometimes), Microsoft (sigh, another one), Linux (it just feels like a real mess), etc. pp. But this doesn't change my rational view.

>As for your article... Do you really think it will be significantly easier to port radeon and nouveau KMS to FreeBSD once Intel KMS/GEM is done?

It's not my article, I just referring to it, because it shows some common problems nowadays between Linux and BSD. No I don't think it will be easy at all in this context, because it is just one guy doing this job and this is a common problem in FreeBSD (one guy doing the job). But apart from that, it may be interesting for you: Martin Wilke (aka miwi) got a new X server up and running

>Between AMD and Intel GPUs

I don't even call this thing of Intel GPU, it's a mock-up, including the drivers. But even then, if you wan't a GPU including descent drivers, that sucks less, then you have to go with nVidia.
use UNIX or die :-)
