This other part of my message was also explaining that it depends on the
needs of the person which want to try it.
The cases were it currently does not fit the needs of people is when heavy
3D acceleration, optimius support, or dynamic fan speed depending on
temperature is needed.
In other situations, I have not said it was not a good idea, did I?
I also said that the kernel 3.8 seems to have a fairly bettre version of
nouveau driver, which I was not able to test efficiently due to problems I
did not even tried to diagnose and fix.

I thought it was clear, but is sounds it was not, so I present my
apologies, and thanks you to have fixed my unclear words.
