I'd argue more about how completely broken OpenGL has been since FC6 if
I thought it would do any good.

Lets compare FC6:

With F10/F11:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487432
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=496539


FC6 and F7 worked beautifully. F8/9 began a habit of locking up the
machine randomly. Then modesetting completely screwed OpenGL entirely in
F10. Still broken in F11.

I've just given up and moved all my gaming and game development to
Windows XP. And my wife's laptop doesn't even have Fedora on it anymore.
Windows Just Works. Everything she used in Fedora: OpenOffice, pidgin,
gimp and Firefox all run just fine in Windows, plus she can run WoW,
flash and all the proprietary crap she needs for school with no trouble
at all.
