You're totally right and I personnaly can't tolerate it anymore

I've been using Linux for 9 years now and I feel I've spent more time configuring things to get them work than simply enjoying my - great - operating system.

We're talking about video cards here, but it also applies to any kind of hardware (sound cards, printers, scanners, etc...).

Today I'm really fed up. I know the problem does not come from Linux developers, you've just given the right cause. But I can't wait any longer.

So I'll have to switch to WinXP, although that's rather bad news for me.

I just hope Linux support from hardware manufacturers will greatly improve in the coming years...

Until then, I'll be enjoying my 8800GT through Windows, my only choice for the moment
