To be precise, if you have no xorg.conf, F11 will use nouveau
automatically, assuming it's installed, which I think it should be
(Matej, it was installed by default on previous releases, right - just
not *used* by default?) If you have an xorg.conf remaining from a
previous release which specifies a particular driver (nvidia or nv),
that driver will continue to be used, F11 won't magically override your
xorg.conf.

I'm going to amend that slightly to explain *how* to uninstall
proprietary drivers, and try and explain in a roundabout way that it's
OK if you use TRWSNBN).
