It sure is, it's a lot more responsive and ALSA is working great too.
I didn't notice any differences in functionality only the 'improved feel'.

No, me neither as it seems... only I don't seem to have a console
framebuffer. Well, at boot I see nothing and when switching to console
after X is started (also when snoozing), it looks really psychedelic
with masses of lines jumping around in all kinds of colors.
It's nice, I'd rather have a console though :)

I made the assumption that the rsyncing linuxppc2.5-benh tree had a good
default config for my TiBook IV. Maybe it was and I messed it up, but I
have enabled in the Graphics Support section:

CONFIG_FB 	 Support for frame buffer devices
CONFIG_FB_OF	 Open Firmware frame buffer device support
CONFIG_FB_RADEON ATI Radeon display support (New driver)

and that's it (Frame Buffer console support doesn't need to be enabled?).
I didn't want to bother you with the entire config, but I can send it, if
needed... I'm still fiddling with the options right now.
