On the other hand I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my
nVidia card was supported straight when installing F11 as it was one
of the few not supported by the nv (open) driver for a while (the

Which Intel do you have?  I've got a 945 which did go through a phase
of performing badly, but I think it was better behaved last time I
tried turning desktop effects on (F11, I skipped past F10).
