I will tell it again and again and again. The problem is that gfx and other devices do not conform to a standard that would help create cross-OS drivers targeting the standard and not vendors. No matter how good are the programmers the Linux/Haiku/Solaris .... drivers will be crippled. We need one standard, like VESA, for capabilites exposed by the HW to the OS developer that should encompass GPUs and APUs (AMD's terminology). You just swap the GFX, not the drivers.
