3D News, GL, DirectX "In late August we started asking our readers for any questions they had for NVIDIA about Linux and this graphics company's support of open-source operating systems. Twelve pages worth of questions were accumulated and we finally have the answers to a majority of them. NVIDIA's Andy Ritger, who leads the user-space side of the NVIDIA UNIX Graphics Driver team for workstation, desktop, and notebook GPUs, answered these questions. With that said, there are some great, in-depth technical answers and not the usual marketing speak found in many interviews."

I can't disagree with you more.

intel: Intel drivers are not high quality. Look at all the people bitching about intel performance in Ubuntu 9.04. When that's fixed, you're still going to be left with hardware that can barely run a 3d app. For people who just want compiz that's fine, but for anything else, intel is not an option.

ati: I realize they've released a bunch of documentation. Their drivers still suck though (and I'm including both the open source drivers and the binary ones). Maybe, just maybe if one of the developers working on the ati open source drivers has your exact card you'll get "okay" 2d performance.
