3D News, GL, DirectX "At Phoronix we are constantly exploring the different display drivers under Linux, and while we have reviewed Sun's Check Tool and test motherboards with Solaris in addition to covering a few other areas, we have yet to perform a graphics driver comparison between Linux and Solaris. That is until today. With interest in Solaris on the rise thanks to Project Indiana, we have decided to finally offer our first quantitative graphics comparison between Linux and Solaris with the NVIDIA proprietary drivers."

I think poor drivers are the cause of a vast majority of instability slack Windows gets.


Completely agree. XP has been very stable for me. I've had one blue screen on one of three systems I run XP on since moving from 98. It was a vid card (bad vid card) that gorked the system.
