Linux Yeah, it's the day of double-dippin' today. And, the contradiction couldn't be bigger. In one corner we have one of the oldest and most respected distributions, and in the other corner we have the sometimes controversial but immensely popular relative newcomer. Slackware 13.37 and Ubuntu 11.04 have been released.

"It does work with all the open source drivers (Intel, Nouveau, ATI/Radeon, etc.)


But not with any of the closed-source ones. That already is enough for it to be unusable for many a people.
"

Sure but many people also prefer the open-source drivers with good 2d acceleration and good enough 3d acceleration, KMS, RANDR, and so on that the close-source drivers lack.
