kudos to the driver developers.
for the very first time i am able to get a smooth ride in fedora with all the bells and whistles.
Everything just works and no crashes (not even once :D)
My system rock solid and i am so very much enjoying it.
Hats off to you linux community :D

Running lxde-i386-20100308.19.iso from a live USB flash drive with
(an updated) lxpanel-0.5.5-2.fc13.i686
plus or minus
on my HP s3707c Pavilion Slimline desktop with onboard Nvidia 9100 graphics. A couple of observations:
1. It works! :D
2. Running glxgears both without then with mesa-dri-drivers-experimental installed was interesting. Not only was I getting approximately 25% more fps with the mesa nouveau driver, but the system CPU usage, as measured by the lxpanel cpu usage monitor, appears to have dropped by about 20%. Fps numbers aren't yet close to those seen with the nvidia driver, it's very usable for my needs.
