      323.xx? I could have sworn the previous series was 319.xx.

            Facts like that won't stop people from posting their beloved picture of Linus giving the bird. It's even funnier when someone calls Mir a "space toilet", names their Phoronix account that, and then complains about lack of Mir support. Sigh....

              Anyone else getting bored of this? Seriously, nvidia isn't that bad, and the reasons why most linux users reference this picture are not for the same reasons Linus did this in the first place. Linus mostly just hates how nvidia is difficult to work with. If I built a new linux machine with a focus on GPU performance, I would pick nvidia and use their binary drivers.

                If you build a computer with the intention of using proprietary drivers then nVidia is obviously the only good choice... But most people don't need the proprietary drivers, in which case AMD is the best choice.

                  Then you don't even need a dedicated graphics card in the first place.

                    That's probably very true. I honestly think an APU is more than adequate for the majority of people. Newer Intel or any AMD APU would do just fine.
