Just how terrible? I like Nvidia support and if ATI support is impossible than I guess I'll have to go for a GFti4200 and wait a while for an upgrade.

I'm very happy for your friend. Does anyone have any personal xp in this matter? Problems you've encountered etc.

You're probably better off asking this question in a Linux forum...

I'm lazy. When it becomes critical I will research the matter, but since I hang around anyway, what's the harm in asking?

<A HREF="http://www.rage3d.com/cgi-bin/news/search.pl?keyword=linux" target="_new"> Everything you wanted to know about ATI's drivers for linux </A>


Is there anything really more to say?
 
What is this Lin.. Ox you speak of?

Is it like Omega Drivers?

Can I overclock this Linus based, err LinuX based thing?

What 3D/Bungholio Marks will I get?

Are there any Gnome Issues in the 'fixed in this release' section?

Is it compatible with XP, or will I have to re-install 98 or Win2K?

As you can tell, I'm Gnu to this stuff.
