It's not going to work for my Ubuntu GMA945-based laptop, but I can understand the decision made by Qt to improve cross-platform compatibility especially on windows.

As an aside, I'm eager to run stellarium on my raspberry pi (and the GPU may be sufficient for rendering) but I'm not sure about the CPU capability given the heavy use of floating point arithmetic (mainly in StelProjector).

I think the ANGLE layer in Qt5 is there to translate OpenGLES2 for all
devices with DirectX9c or so, this should at least include most Intel GMA
which are only OpenGL1.4. Of course, Windows-only, but I hope it works for
my Atom...
