Our first article on this topic, which will likely be the first of a series of examinations, is looking at the differences between the X.Org open-source ATI Radeon driver and that of ATI's official but proprietary fglrx display driver."

I'm kind of laughing at it reporting about half the FPS it should on that hardware (or would under windows) given that we're talking a 7 year old game engine (Quake 3).

But then Linux for gaming is only about 10% more effective for gaming than OS X...

Wait, what's 110% of 0 again?
