Parent article: Two examples of abandoned hardware
Sell your AMD proccessor, sell your ram, sell your motherboard.
Buy a Intel system with 945g chipset for the GMA 950 and it's effortless 2d AND 3d acceleration. Open source drivers developed internally by Intel hired X.org hackers.
Go for the Intel G965 based motherboards and put up with some teething problems in terms of Linux driver support and get better 3D performance.
Other then that, that's it.
And as far a AMD/ATI goes it's just going to get worse. They are locking their cards down to the point were now you can't even access the framebuffer anymore. All for the sake of DRM.
It's not like Intel is any better in terms of morality. They just know how to support Linux properly.
