Re: NVDIA or ATI (over Linux)
Thats not exactly an accurate statement.
PRIOR to ATI being acquired by AMD (2006), their drivers were definitely trash. SINCE then, their drivers have been improved to the point where they are approximately equivalent to NVidia. It took a while, but they had a lot of trash to work through. In addition, they've released the specifications for open sourced driver development, and this definitely puts them ahead of nvidia in terms of linux-friendliness.
BTW: posting a poll like that HERE is definitely NOT going to get you any kind of useful results. Most people visiting this forum are biased towards nvidia. Posting a poll like that elsewhere will get you better results, but they will still be influenced by what people remember from the pre-06 condition of ati drivers.
