3D News, GL, DirectX "We have been overwhelmed with requests to take a serious look at the frame-rate performance differences between the various open-source and proprietary contenders. Our first article on this topic, which will likely be the first of a series of examinations, is looking at the differences between the X.Org open-source ATI Radeon driver and that of ATI's official but proprietary fglrx display driver."

Actually it's been the opinion of many that the Audigy drivers for windows suck majorly. Creative's drivers have been called the worse next to... yeah you guessed it, ATI's. ATI's Windows drivers have gotten better, but Creative's still suck.

I have an Audigy 2 Platinum and guess what, every single thing that it does in Windows also works in Linux, even the remote control works.

About the only thing Alsa doesn't really support is EAX, but that's because EAX is non-existent in games on Linux. Instead they use OpenAL, which is also what Unreal Tournament and a few other games use even in Windows....
