I run only hardware with free drivers, currently a Matrox G450 and
Intel G9?? on my laptop. It's possible with limitations, one of which
is a long standing crasher bug when closing the Gem-window in the
combination Gem/Mesa-DRI. I have yet to check with the newest versions
of both, though.

AFAIK the open source ATi drivers don't support 3D-accel yet, so it
seems, Intel cards are currently the fastest cards with open source
3D-accel on Linux.
