Re: X11R7.1 about to enter FC5-updates. Driver support?
True, NVIDIA is a business. But they've long been known as the way to go with Linux. Things have changed; ATI now provides their own proprietary drivers that are far superior to the crap open-source ones that were previously the only (half-way working) option. Obviously ATI thought the market was worthwhile to get into, why would NVIDIA be so hurt by supporting it better? Btw, ATI has already released an X7.1-compatible driver.
NOTE: I'm not affiliated with ATI, nor do I intend to give up my GeForce 6600 for some piece-of-crap ATI card. But I still wish NVIDIA would give a bit better support considering how far behind the 9xxx drivers are for Linux...
