First, no one will force you to do anything.

Second, something about your driver situation is horribly, horribly wrong. You need to fix it; the 965 has stellar support and performance is two orders of magnitude better than what you are getting.

Third, a netboot graphics chip, so far, shipped in two netbooks is not the future of Intel graphics. Larabee is. Google it.

Last, just speculation but by the way in which the TTM/GEM has been developed, I suspect that we'll see OpenCL (yes, CL, not GL) available in some officially supported fashion on Linux on Larabee in the form of a 100% open-source driver before the end of 2010.

If you want to google it, spelling it "Larrabee" should work better.
