Hmm, I like the 169.* and 171.* drivers... (e.g GlyphCache, PowerMizer display, OpenGL 2.1.2, ...). And I'm glad that I'm not stuck with the 100.14 or 9755-something... YMMW

well, just replace "Driving strength" with "Signal strength"... (a famous example was the AGP Driving Strength on VIA's 694X)

I have resorted to not using Gnome either. My desktop is really snappy since I switched to terminal and wget.

I have a tty! (for real!)
