Milestone: R1/beta1R1

It is highly unlikely that we get a new generation nvidia driver in time for beta1. Removing from schedule.

At this point the ATI/Intel modesetting drivers "generally work", and there are a lot of individual tickets about them which track their statuses individually. Not even FreeBSD has an open-source NVIDIA modesetting driver, so we probably won't get one anytime soon either.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
