Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

I wouldn't use Nvidia simply their products are poor quality and have been so for many years.

I've worked in several companies and industries where the stability and quality of the GPU is paramount and it's been many years since I worked in a place that didn't use Nvidia GPUs. These people are neither "ricers" or "gamers", but professionals who need to be able to depend on their graphics cards, and they're all happy with Nvidia (or at least more happy than they'd be with any other brand).
