Default Re: NVIDIA has restored their good LINUX support opinion in my eyes

I don't agree too.
Geforce 9600GT 1024MB don't work with 64-bit system in SMP mode: kernel 2.6.28.x - 2.6.29.x, nvidia driver 178.xx - 185.xx

Default Re: NVIDIA has restored their good LINUX support opinion in my eyes

Gregor, You said You reversed back to nVidia after ATI cards usage.
Please, tell us why You went back? I would like to hear some summary what was good/bad with ATI compared with nVidia and vice versa.
I think that could help us all clear the doubts about what to choose, we'll be able to see each vendor's pros/cons from real world example.
I have both ATI and nVidia and can't tell anything bad about ATI yet, everything works (including suspend/hibernate) with fglrx, games and stuff, 2D is blazing fast, compiz works just like that and so on, with latest drivers nVidia does about the same, except hibernate. VDPAU and faster X and kernel integrations are nVidia's pros.

Please, share Your expierence with us as well, that should be really beneficial...

The difference is that NVIDIA support for Linux is bad and ATI support for Linux is even worse.
