Just popped in to say hello and thanks to NVidia
 
Hello

Not much to ask for really but just stopped by to say hello to the forum and thanks to NVidia as their support for Linux influenced me enough to buy a 8800GTS rather than another ATI card, which I have done since owing a 9700pro ages ago.

Without NVidia's Linux support I would have continued to buy a ATI card.

I am VERY new to Linux and sometimes I think that my eyes are glazing over as there is so much to learn. But having tried ATI's drivers, which are very poor, I must admit to being very suprised to find how good Nvidia's are.

Great forum and great drivers :)

It is great to see Beryl working as it should within PC Linux 2007 test 3 distro. and my resolution and refresh rate working ok.

Bye for now...

My experiences exactly and this is the primary reason why I purchased a 6800GT when I had a 9800 PRO.

I too would like to thank Nvidia for their great Linux support. Geforce is the only chip in Linux with full XvMC mpeg-2 decoding AND great OpenGL.

Because of great Linux support I buy Nvidia chips only. Since year 2001 when the first Geforce 2 mx appeared and first 1.0-1251 driver hit the nvidia.com webpage in May 2001 :)

I bought once ATI Radeon 9000 but returned it to shop in favour of Geforce FX5200 (more expensive but thanks to Linux driver worth paying). That was very good decision. ATI Linux driver support is awful and quality is poor when compared to Nvidia. ATI recently updates its driver but is still far far away behind Nvidia in terms of quality and feature richness (no XvMC at all however ATI hardware can do such work).
