On the other hand, Nvidia has *never* helped with the development of the open-source Nouveau drivers. Those only work because of reverse-engineering.
Intel has been cooperating with and funding open-source graphics driver development for the longest time, so their drivers work well for nearly everything. Intel graphics on my laptop work flawlessly with suspend/HDMI/kernel mode-setting, etc. etc. etc.
So yeah, Intel > ATI > Nvidia in terms of practical features, and Intel ~ ATI >> Nvidia in terms of "vendor doing the right thing these days."
