btw, could you please point out where NVIDIA is falling behind? Compared to say ATI or MATROX or SIS or S3/VIA or INTEL?
Playing a devil's advocate, a? Well, I do not want 2D acceleration that is 'greater' in any sense than 2D acceleration on Windows machine I use at work - smooth scrolling in Firefox 2, responsive GUI... on a Sempron 3000+ and nVidia 5200, whilst my 3 GHz dual core Athlon64 and nVidia 9600GT are giving me 1999. experience, esp. in Firefox (and that is FF 3, quite a performer when compared to FF2). I think I am entitled to ask, if not demand improved 2D support, as well as a response from someone in charge, not a local smartass...
