It is, but I wouldn't say its fair to call the OS in general immature strictly because of drivers. And as I've said before, debian squeeze is extremely out of date, there have been immense performance improvements to ARM that squeeze doesn't offer. Note that in the linux world, 6 months is like 3 people-years. Fair enough, although I don't remember you specifying that you used one of these remixes. Keep in mind that many changes that occur in derivatives of distros don't always make it back to the parent distro, so it is completely possible that the Pi remix is notably faster than the default. Again, remix or not, squeeze is not going to give you desirable results. You just said "latest release" which could mean latest stable, unstable, or testing. I'm not trying to be an ass or anything, I'm trying to be informative. You'd be surprised how big of a difference there is between each repo of debian. I actually completely forgot that you mentioned Quake III, my bad.
