In an effort to get a better understanding for the current state of ATI's proprietary fglrx Linux display drivers, and to provide the alternative OS community with more facts as well as in-house comments, Phoronix has today announced the creation of redblog.phoronix.com. This blog will focus on the Phoronix Editor-In-Chief, Michael Larabel, personally evaluating ATI's current Linux drivers for 50-days -- simply think of it as an ATI Linux review for an extended amount of time.

While over a year ago the quality of the red's Linux display drivers could be refuted, they certainly have improved by near light-years when it comes to their installation strategy, performance, bug issues, and variety of cards supported -- among other areas. But how well does this ATI experience come first hand? Are gamers and computer enthusiasts alike now ready to accept ATI's current Linux display drivers for prime-time action?

For those GNU/Linux users with proprietary display drivers, you already know what all the fuss is about but for the rest the preface and introduction for this blog can be read here and here respectively.

This blog can be found at redblog.phoronix.com, and be sure to tune into its RSS feed for the latest commentary.
