It is known, documented, and well explained that Jaunty steps forward with Xorg 1.6 and that the new Xorg will require video driver rewrites and updates. Which, if you'll notice, haven't happened yet. Well, thats not GOING to happen until we get at least a RC1 and probably won't happen until AFTER the release. Why? Because we're still in BETA, the code isn't locked down, and nobody writing closed source binaries is going to release to the wild for an unstable product. You'll kindly also note than Virtualbox is only available for Jaunty in OSE (not PUEL), and on down the line third-party NON REPOSITORY packages that have Gutsy and Hardy and Intrepid debs and packages don't have anything for Jaunty. Yet.
The Mini9 w/ Jaunty gets 530-580 fps from glxgears w/o compiz, and 500-530fps with compiz. Which I leave at "normal" unless I'm watching a movie.

My machines both have Intel graphics (don't alot of people?) and the drivers that came with Jaunty are all screwy. 3D effects don't work, and flash is all choppy. After a couple of hours trying workarounds to no avail, I threw my hands up in the air and gave up. It should "just work"? What a joke.
