    Totally agree.

    I sometimes wonder, really do, if all of the people who clamor for open source drivers and refuse to touch NVidia's closed (and working) drivers are either (a) really windows users or (b) people who just boot to a VT and work from there.

    There's really only one choice with graphics under Linux, and it's NVidia.

    I'd just like to point out that both nvidia and ati already supported all the options within the new opengl release - it's just that they might have different names (i.e an extension rather than a core function).

    I'll regret not going nvidia when...naah, never gonna happen.

    Yawn.

    Call me when nvidia.ko stops trying to deref null pointers and oopsing my kernel. When it stops being terrible at controlling its own fan. When it learns how to rotate screens and do multiple monitors properly. When it can manage to have a single release that doesn't have performance regression or "signal handling issues." Or how about a "great legacy driver" that manages to not create strange green lesions on my screen and an eventual panic if I don't figure out what the afflicted app is and kill it post haste? Hell, even just tell me when it can manage to take less memory than Firefox.

    nvidia.ko is bad software. That fglrx is also poor doesn't change this fact.

    I used to have an ATI card, I love the 2D/video display quailty of it very much, but when it comes to Linux support, it is really annoying. Every time a new Xorg release is out, I have to wait couple of monty before the driver is ready and stable, and some broken feature is not fixed!(Shader is not working for many releases! Yep, no advance compiz effects.) But for NVIDIA, they alway provide good Linux driver. So I go for NVIDIA at last. Compiz now works fine.

    Yeah that's exactly what we have been raving for the past 2 years... or maybe 3?
    More like the day ATi even said the words "Catalyst" and "Linux" in the same sentence. Biggest disappointment in computing history.

    Wow, thank you Nvidia! Even though I have a Radeon Xpress 1150, I enjoy seeing their promptness to support new features in Linux.
