JC also said that a year ago and considering his OpenGL stance that's certainly reasonable. However, a lot has changed in that past year:
1) ATi beat Nvidia to market with a DX9 part by over six months and have given quite a few 9700 boards to developers
2) ATi's drivers have continued to improve by quite a bit.
I still think it's fairly safe to say that Nvidia holds a plurality of developer support, though.
John uses an NV30 in his main work machine. So from that perspective, nothing has changed - nVidia are still used by some of the top developers as their primary development platform.
