Default Re: is the nvidia driver falling behind?

Anybody tried ati/intel/nvidia side by side? I did and nvidia kick the living **** out of the others by feature support and stability (on Ubuntu and Debian).
I use nvidia on all my computers (one onboard, one laptop, one PCIE desktop) and i can tell you that they are absolutely stable and all functions (suspend/resume/hibernate) work flawlessly on all 3 computers (running Debian Squeeze + the nvidia provided driver).
The intel/radeon driver cannot even touch nvidia in OpenGL support (games etc).
Ok, maybe 2 sec slower than KMS for VT switching but i can absolutely live with that ( i dont do that all day). Also startup speed+lack of flickering doesnt bother me (as i reboot once a few days).
If it aint broken dont fix it...
