Neither can I X.
915G, ugh!
The thought of using that again makes me feel slightly ill.
How about a Radeon 4650 driver?

Nagh, I think Radeon is more MorphOS territory.

This on the other hand is good considering that the majority of Laptops and small form factor PC's that support AROS well have never had 3D acceleration. I never understood why it took so damn long. You'd think that NVIDIA support would have came secondary (even though it is superior) considering that hardly any of the compatible computers had an NVIDIA video chip set built in.

Good points. I had a 915G based motherboard a couple of years ago when I still had Intel processors.
I'm actually a big fan of integrated graphics (its just that Intel's have been so damned primitive).

As I said in the linked thread Intel definately isnt my choice of graphics adaptors, but being that Intel commands more of the graphics market than all other vendors combined having reasonbly functional drivers is quite important for an x86 OS.
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.
