Does not work as well as it should at least for me :(,  when I try to play a DVD with mplayer I get:

           **** Your system is too SLOW to play this!  ****

This on a computer with Quad Core CPU, 4 GB of Ram, 


And if it were not enough I tried to give it a chance, and generate an Xorg.conf file to see if I could get to work reasonably and I get kernel oops/panics like the one below

Kernel failure message 1:

I know you have a personal grudge against nvidia, but noveau is NOT THERE YET, wish it was, but it is not that one has to use proprietary drivers(which work well by the way, either directly from nvidia or rpmfusion) have used both and don't mind them a bit.  Wish you were right, but depending on the computer itself and the graphics card, YMMV.
