Intel open source video drivers for Linux

Big news for all Linux users with Intel graphics chips who want to do 3D accelarated stuff like Xgl and 3D Linux games using open source drivers, because Intel have released the source code to their 3D drivers for their Intel 965 Express range.

Sounds good to me – but to be honest neither does it have a particularly profound effect for me because on this machine I’m running the binary Nvidia proprietary drivers (for my 6600 GT) and I don’t own/have access to a machine running Intel integrated graphics. Still, if anyone has any experiences with these drivers, leave a comment, I’d like to hear what people think of them.
