Do Intel HD 3000 Graphics run out of the box on Linux? Or do I have to do some manual work to get it working? Does Intel develop open source drivers?

Are they faster than on Windows?

This would apply for any Linux distribution.

Ubuntu 11.04 beta seems to support the graphics drivers out of the box, as per this discussion.
