"Earlier this month we started once again our annual Linux Graphics Survey in which we poll our readers about their choices and opinions concerning graphics cards, display drivers, and other graphics / X.Org related features of the Linux desktop. While this survey is still going on through the end of September -- so you still have time to participate -- here are the results from the first 6,300 people to submit their responses. We are publishing the results so far since there is the X Developers' Summit this week in Toulouse and some of these findings may prove to be useful during those discussions.

"When finding out what technologies the users are most interested in between KMS, Gallium3D, 3D performance, video acceleration, 2D performance, and power management, the most populous response was the same as last year: video acceleration. Though with nearly as much interest as video acceleration is improved 3D performance for the Linux drivers. These top two choices are not a surprise at all considering the overall Linux video acceleration state could benefit from lots of love and attention and in terms of 3D performance the open-source driver performance with Mesa/Gallium3D is in shambles compared to the proprietary drivers from AMD/NVIDIA."
