    While I don't have as low of an opinion of the linux video drivers as you, the one sure way to get companies to devote more manpower to linux drivers is a bigger market share, and one of the things that is hindering that is lack of linux games.

    Bit of a chicken and egg... but both ati and nvidia binary drivers are in a good enough state to run source engine.

    Not that I'm saying steam is comming, but if it did, chances are it could only help your cause...

      I know... I'll probably be one of those complaining anyway.

        @AdrenalineJunky: FOSS drivers are half baked - except git, 3/4 baked. Proprietary drivers - don't get me started...

          Computer "gaming" is over-rated

          Computer "games", at least the sort that requires fancy 3D graphics, is over-rated. Flash games are by far the most popular. It's not the lack of linux games that's hindering linux adoption, but the dismal performance of Flash under linux.

            Flash may be another issue, but I've seen enough "i'd consider linux if x game worked" comments to disagree with games not being a big factor.

            I'll agree with the foss portion, at least on the amd side. Nvidia is worse off when it comes to foss.

            But again, I haven't had many issues with catalyst.
