I would like to put together a new system for my development and one part that I have never understood very well is that related to graphics, particularly in the sense of being able to use it in its full potential.
The situation for desktops is now more comfortable, but it is still not 100% clear for a luser: for instance, its it OK to buy nvidia hardware? The idea that I may be supporting a company that only has its hardware working with reverse-engineered drivers doesn't seem right.
In comparison, AMD/ATI cards seem like they "should have the blessings", but the last time I saw the features that the radeon/radeonhd cards support, it had a good amount TODO items for cards for some time...
So, what should one Freedom-conscious user choose in face of the current situation?
Thanks for any comments.
