We we warned there were performance issues with "Intel drivers" but I could never expect something as bad. I have a Mobile Intel 965 Chipset but when I go in the Details in cinnamon it says the Graphics is a Gallium something. Seems like the drivers are wrong.
I don't know if I should play around trying to find a fix or reinstall Maya or some other distribution so I can use my computer without booting windows...

If it the output states: "Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x301)" then log out and log back in again and the correct Intel driver should be loaded. Check the output of "inxi -G" again to make sure.
