    Hi there,

    first of my specs:

    inoki@innerdistance-Satellite-L650:~$ inxi -F

               Clock Speeds: 1: 933.00 MHz 2: 933.00 MHz 3: 933.00 MHz 4: 933.00 MHz
    Graphics:  Card: Intel Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller

    Info:      Processes: 264 Uptime: 2 days Memory: 2020.6/3753.0MB Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 1.9.17
    Short summary: I'm dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and Ubuntu 14.04 x64 running Steam, the same games run well on Windows while on Linux they are unplayable and it's definitely the driver. For example Left 4 Dead 2 gives me around 50 FPS on Windows while on Linux 10 FPS.
