Linux "Now that the kernel mode-setting page-flipping for the ATI Radeon DRM kernel module has been merged into the Linux 2.6.38 kernel and the respective bits have been set in the xf86-video-ati DDX, we're in the process of running new open-source ATI graphics benchmarks under Linux. Our initial results (included in this article) show these latest improvements to cause some major performance boosts for the open-source ATI driver as it nears the level of performance of the proprietary Catalyst driver."

I don't know what is wrong with your system, but I have a Radeon HD 4870 on Win7 64-bit, and I haven't had the drivers crash on me even once in a year. They're very stable and I quite like auto-overclocking feature, too.
