Well I'm an Intel & Radeon user and Xorg in F9 is dramatically better
better for all my machines. So, yes, if new code improves life for the
open source drivers, lets do this again & again in future releaes. I don't
want my desktop experiance held hostage by one company with binary drivers.
I chose hardware which is supportable so I can get the best & latest open
source has to offer.
