The good news:  I was running Noveau and didn't notice any

The bad news:  Compared to Nvidia, Noveau is 0 for three.
No fan control - it still roars.
No compiz.
Flightgear unusable.

None of these are expected to work IIUC. 3D support is still disabled in
the driver since it is not mature enough. It is just a 2D replacement
with a few benefits for some cards at this point.

this will be a killer for Fedora11 if people cant use compiz/fusion , i can see people staying with fedora10 till there is 3D . hopefully we'll get it in Fedora12
