I agree, I installed Jaunty on my laptop, the good thing was that the
wireless started working for the first time! But the graphics are
sluggisch. I enabled UXA and it doesn't crash  but it's slowish.

Ubuntu's demise will be that changes are pushed that are not ready for
release or break the system. Watch how many sysadmins reverted to Debian
  after the RAID debacle. It took 1.4 year to fix the bug that Ubuntu
introduced in RAID (the bug was never in Debian).
It was also never acknowledged as a failure.

I think there is a chance that after all these bug reports and people
that complain - people that took the effort of installing a prerelease
Jaunty and reporting bugs! Important people! ... that Canonical/Ubuntu
will still ship the shitty driver and just bad luck for those 10% of
customers. And that this will put off those people that took the effort
to participate.

So, concluding, I sincerely hope that 'they' will revert to the older
driver that worked splendidly under Intrepid. Or give a choice while
upgrading.

Cheers,
