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 was toying with windows 7 on my old laptop (2GHz P4) which came with Win XP. No sound, no graphic accelaration
cause the radeon mobilty M6 seems no longer supported by ATI.

But with Ubuntu 9.04 everything works (even the netgear wifi). Cutting edge hardware will always be trouble and this laptop certainly was back then.

On my more recent desktop win 7 is behaving a bit better.
