Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

A few years ago ATI was nothing but trouble for me and some of my friends in *Windows*. In Linux, it was much worse. I haven't tried ATI lately, but now that they have OSS drivers, I do hope that the quality of the hardware and drivers has gone up.
