[Ardour-Dev] SuperRapidScreenUpdates are neither rapid, nor super.

Well 'better' is a matter of perspective.  One is open source and one is
closed source.  The closed source driver will mean you get no support form
the kernel folks as they can't troubleshoot effectively with it present.
Idealogically there are also problems with the closed source for many
folks.  It DOES have more features at this point though.  In the future
hopefully Nouveau will be perfectly usable for our purposes though, which
would be ideal as it is an open source implementation of the driver with
focus on more advanced features like 3D acceleration.
