Nope. The pixmap to texture extension is needed for AIGLX and this has not been implemented yet.

Also.. It's not all about gaming.. It's also about desktop performance..
Forget about AIGLX for a while. This thing isn't mature and there are no fully functional window and composite managers to make use of it yet. The only thing that really needs to show-up now is a 7.1 compatible driver, because right now the whole Linux desktop is broken on NVIDIA.

Various people in this thread gave good answers and behaved correctly. Some are complaining and whining and are changing the thread in a whining/flamewar-like thread. Because of this I'm closing it.
