3D News, GL, DirectX "We have been overwhelmed with requests to take a serious look at the frame-rate performance differences between the various open-source and proprietary contenders. 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've had a lot of hardware that simply got end-of-support by the manufacture and are no longer working with the newest version of windows, some never worked with XP other were broken by SP2.

Much of the same hardware are running nicely on the same PC under Linux, with open drivers made by others then the orginal manufacture.
