    I miss qualelive tests - or quake3 tests - over ubuntu / Arch / MS WOS XP / Vista / 7

    In order to review OS/drivers opengl preformance.

    I have just prove Quake Live for Linux and goes pretty well, but I do not know benchmarks.

    PS: openGL drivers for old Nvidia ( 7950 GX2 works better with crack attack tha ATI old ones X800.

    Because I have a 470 GTX and would like to compare performance.

    It's been said so many times already. Nvidia users are at NvNews, Ati users here.

    Who is forgiving Nvidia? Any names? What is the evidence?

    I think if ATI features are on par with Nvidia, Linux users would buy ATI cards exclusively. No contest. I don't know of any reason why a Linux user would consider Nvidia if ATI cards are up to par or at least 95%+ on par. There is an open source driver and if you have gaming/Wine capability plus high performance video playback that works without bugs/major issues, ATI cards are the obvious choice.

    In Windows, Nvidia cards are often chosen for Folding and if the price/performance is better. I don't think there's not too many other reasons. In Linux, Nvidia cards are chosen so they avoid these issues that are often reported. Just check the categories in this forum. There's a clutter of topics in both ATI FOSS drivers and ATI FGLRX drivers sections. Not much going on in the Nvidia one. Why is that, huh? Because everyone is forgiving Nvidia?!?

    i never ever say something like that.

    more Things like this: "if you buy from a company like nvidia you will burn in hell because you sell your shoul to the devil."
    Lol, so then I guess ATI users are stuck forever in Purgatory. And I would gladly sucker the devil into buying my "shoul".

    Why don't you tell AMD/ATI to put more resources towards Linux instead of preaching Nvidia's 'evil ways?' If ATI truly cared about open source and Linux support, they'd apply more resources into the support. Why am I emphasizing this again? Well, when you read in this forum, the Ubuntu forum, the OpenSUSE forum, the Debian forum.... I don't know...pretty much any forum that is Linux-oriented about disappointment with ATI drivers, whether open source or binary, you begin to suspect that ATI is neglecting these problems.

    If Mikeysoft is evil, then ATI is catering too much to evil so there. There's no 'lesser evil' if one is only masquerading as 'Linux friendly' in support. Nvidia, at least, has all these extra features and most of them work - VDPAU, folding etc. The only real complaint other than the closed source option is the problem with Optimus. I want to see a more concise project by ATI to fix issues instead of so many regressions and not applying fixes to bugs or lack of features that are already reported. Tearing, artifacts and other problems that seem to require manual configuration and constant scripting in order to make baby steps is not any choice if the Nvidia card allows full function of your card. Sure, it won't be on level of Windoze but then all these cards are processed with Mikeysoft operating systems in mind, anyway. They're all evil by association?
