3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

The new 48XX AMD cards are the best cards around PERIOD

And I have no probs with the AMD Catalyst drivers and from what I have heard Nvidia did not support Fedora9 and KDE 4.1beta2 has problems with NVidia cards too.
And AMD releases a new driver every month.
I think a lot of people are just ill informed or Nvidia/Intel users who complain about the AMD drivers.
The old ones might have sucked, but new ones are really nice.
The version 8.6 is excellent actually.

And soon open source drivers will be avail and ready for AMD cards ..

So why would any Linux user still choose Nvidia?
