Whilst that is true (people getting disappointed over perceived lack of progress), I'd just like to reinforce the fact that Mali does not equal hardware acceleration. It is ONLY a 3D engine - the display engine which handles display on the monitor is completely different, and has been working from nearly day one. Without it, we would NOT be able to run a GUI/desktop environment on linux. What Mali will help with is any OpenGLES 3D rendering, and should also help with being able resize and scale videos in memory, allowing for fullscreen video / dynamic resizing of video windows.
