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."

One of the reasons that makes me live in Windows land is that even the binary drivers aren't providing the same level as support as on Windows, being ATI or NVidia for that matter.

Even Carmack is referring to the current state of 3D drivers as a reason to stop caring about Linux in what concerns Rage.

And I could care less for funny 3D desktop effects. What I want is my 3D code to work properly.
