3D News, GL, DirectX "Last October we had compared the performance of the open-source R300 display driver against the closed-source fglrx driver for ATI Radeon graphics cards. In that comparison a Mobility Radeon X300 was used with X.Org 7.1, but we have decided to take another look at this driver comparison under X.Org 7.2. In this last comparison, the fglrx binary blob had greatly outperformed the open-source driver. While the fglrx driver remains faster, has the performance delta between these two drivers decreased?"

Quarrier, FYI, I will us any OS that is best for the job. I do hope you understand what that means. We all need to stop this BS about who uses what and which is best because they all have there strengths and weakness. I have never seen a perfect OS on any lever be it server or desktop. I just think that the person who makes the hardware should be responsible for giving it users what they need. So if the demand is really there why not show it and then they will have no choice but to do so. In the end it all comes down to money. where are the sales coming from.
take a look at this, you may get it.
