The change from "nv" to "nouveau" was a good improvement for my main system
(Thinkpad T61), 2D graphics performance improved noticeably although I do
occasionally get transient corrupted bitmaps. Debian is dedicated to free
software (which precludes the non-free NVidia driver from being in main) and I
don't want the security risk of running binary-only software on my important
I am not aware of anything that stops a Debian user from using a binary-only
Intel video cards work really well in my experience, performance is great
including on 3D graphics with games such as Warzone 2100, Super Tux Carts, and
Tux Racer. Given a choice I'd just buy a system with Intel graphics.

Ubuntu aren't as much into free software.
Speaking for myself I'm more than happy for people who want Debian with non-
free software to use Ubuntu. I think that they are doing a great job of
making a Debian-derived distribution that supports non-free software and is
easy to use.

It seems that you are well qualified to help with that. Christian seems to be
one of the leaders of the Debian translation project, I suggest that you
contact him off-list to discover how you can help improve this.

Sorry, I don't have time for that, I don't even have enough time to do as much
development work for Debian as I wish. Now if you could find some funding for
me so I could cease some of my paid work then things would change...
