"The talk at the Ubuntu Developer Summit surrounding the X.Org
plans for Ubuntu 10.10 just wrapped up. Compared to the Ubuntu
10.04 LTS release, Ubuntu 10.10 should provide a much more recent
and up-to-date graphics experience.
"Plans for Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" already include
shipping with the Linux 2.6.35 kernel, which is wonderful on many
different fronts except for the time it may take to support within
the ATI Catalyst Linux driver. This means Ubuntu Maverick users
will get all of the DRM advancements made in the Linux 2.6.34
kernel like initial Radeon KMS power management and also some of
the DRM improvements that are expected to me merged into the Linux
2.6.35 kernel when its development commences in a few weeks"
