3D News, GL, DirectX ATI has released the 8.29.6 version of its proprietary Linux drivers, with the announcement that the 9000, 9100, and 9200 IGP and Mobility Radeon chipsets are no longer supported by the new version. Radeon 8500, 9000, 9100, 9200, and 9250 devices are also dropped from support. Thankfully, these models are supported in 2D/3D mode by the open source DRI driver.

I play Unreal 99/03/04, Call of duty 1/2, quake 1/2/3/4, doom 3, Dune 2000, Hearts of iron, Guild wars, World of warcraft, Warcraft 1/2/3, Neverball, Worms, Red Alert 1/2 and many more games. And its not just once in a quarter or so. Its more like 8 hours a day =) Well aslong as im still on vacation anyways. (im on my last week of the three months holliday) As wine progresses and more games is actually supported i think ill soon see most games overall to work in linux. This news might feel like a backlash but in fact the open source drivers are actually quite fast for those cards wich is dropped, so people getting them or have one since earlier shouldnt be worried. Btw in some FPS style games i have actually seen better performance than in windows. (the native ones atleast)
