    Didn't Nvidia buy 3dfx? I seem to recall that's about the time they began to drop behind ATI .

      I think this is a variation on Poe's Law: it's hard to tell the difference between a condescending dismissal of perceived fundamentalism from a parody of such.

      For what it's worth, I replaced my NVIDIA card with a Radeon, and I run the open-source drivers on all of my ATI machines. I am willing to take the performance and feature hit in exchange for freedom and the promise of future open-source awesomeness.

      Also, I really appreciate the work you and others do for the FOSS graphics world. Thank you!

        Yeah, nvidia rules!

          Yes, I was.

          In reality, I'm quite a fundie myself.

              Voodoo ran great on 98.

              Slackware 9 was about the only Linux I knew of that shipped the SDK/driver.


              2000 didnt much support the features. 1999 was a good year.
