I'm planning to buy a new notebook and among the winners are some with integrated video card.
My question is how can I live on Linux with integrated card? I want to use it for mainly programming, photo editing, watching movies and usual office stuff, no games or 3D related stuff. I'm sure I won't have any problem with these tasks. Also I would like to use Google Earth which is more problematic. Do you have experience with it? Any flickering?
I also would like to use some Windows in virtualized environment (virtualbox or vmware) with usual apps (no 3D or games related). Will there any problem with them?
Can I use compiz related desktop effects?
