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."

Wow... what an "objective" BS you just wrote there, backed by absolutely no evidence other than personal bias.

Given that NVIDIA defined, literally, 3D graphics in Linux. And the fact that up til recently ATi had mediocre support for the OS at best, and there are still plenty of features missing from the ATi drivers (which up to recently were just plain awful, in both Windows and Linux land BTW). Then yeah, it sounds like "you know what you are talking about" NOT.

Seriously, I never though I would see the day where someone would try to make a serious attempt at claiming with a straight face that ATI products work better under linux that NVIDIA's.
