Funny... ATI didn't used to get it until AMD bought them but ATI gfx cards
run great on Linux desktops with fglrx. Once the open source 3d drivers catch
up enough to reliably run compiz on them I'll switch fulltime. Nvidia is not
the only video card company that makes hardware work relatively well with
Linux. Up until recently, Matthew Tippett was a very important resource to
help see this through.
