The sad reality is that there is no open source driver that meets my needs. If there were, I'd use it, but it JUST DOESN'T EXIST.
I use ATI Radeon 9250 cards on all our machines for which free 3D support is excellent, however these cards cannot plug into current motherboards.
At a recent SLUG presentation, an Xorg developer spoke of better support for some later ATI cards in Xorg. Is there free support for later ATI video cards (those that support “PCI Express” motherboards) in Xorg 7.1?
