Who voted ATI?
I don't think he's serious about that.
ATI in Linux sucks.

Yeah, I just hit ATI cuz it's what I have and it's always worked well for me. But I'm WAY overdue for an upgrade, for multiple components. Alright, let's just call it a whole new computer. ;-)

i wonder who voted for Intel, seldom had such a belly laugh, really ;)

well, OK, nvidia isnt open source, though.. the drivers work OK here (xfree, xorg, whatever).
what i would like if prelinking would work to libgl.so - this constantly fails, because the drivers are configured without "-pic".

YEAH, ATI THE BEST!
WOW, it's a hard strike to constate the results of this poll, I swear I never could imagine them!!
I cannot compare equally ATI and Nvidia under Linux just because I'm pretty new and inexperienced to the Linux world and because I don't own all the resources required to do that.
It seems to me that Nvidia has more support, but I don't know wich of the two effectively runs better under Linux; and I know that the question only refers to the Linux system, but anyway it's not my habit to value hardware by its drivers!
And in every system I tried it, with every OS i could test it with my friends, even with every sort of pro-Nvidia optimization avaiable, ATI chipsets came out BY VEEERY FAR superior.
By my experience, my Radeon never gave me any kind of problem under Linux, so I confirm my vote: ATI rules!

your vote surely reflects your obvious lack of experience. first of all the poll was only refering to linux distros. ATI is a powerfull card manufacturer but it fails a lot in linux support. The first serious drivers launched for linux were version 8.8.25, even though they are not performance oriented. Like i have better performance with my geforce2 mx400 than with my radeon 9600 under gentoo-2.6.9-r9.
No one doubts ati is better in windows...

How can they have voted for ATI ??
ATI has good graphic cards, but their drivers are piece of shit ! Even not able to have a correct Composite (OpenGL can't be enabled with it) or an accelerated XRender!


Written under Konqueror, of course !

I see that some people already voted for other... What are the alternatives and how well are they supported under Linux?

I voted other because I am tired of binary proprietary drivers. I want something free and open. I want something that doesn't force to me sit on my butt for six months waiting for it to be ported to a new kernel. I don't want something that's considered a second class citizen to the Windows version. I don't want to scrounge eBay for old hardware that's natively supported in X.org and DRI.

As a FreeBSD user, I don't have the option of using a binary Linux-only driver. I have native SATA, NIC and audio drivers, so why can't I have a native video driver? Both the video and wifi manufacturers need to get out of their proprietary world and realize that they're in the business of selling hardware, and not one of keeping drivers secret. Sheesh, at least open up the freaking specs so someone else can write the drivers!

I'm supporting the Open Graphics Hardware Project. My applications can be as proprietary as they want to be, but my infrastructure, which includes all drivers, needs to be open.

Sounds like it's time to upgrade to Linux ;)... nudge nudge wink wink. I agree with with you and then I start to put it together in my head. You would almost need to create a startup company that builds a " THE OPEN VIDEO CARD!!!!!" Did you hear the echo.hehe Someday there will be such a thing but until then dload src.kernel and like you said wait for them.


The best thing about owning a Linux box is i's mine and you cant play in it.

I'm running FreeBSD, too. Matrox (in particular G550) cards work very well natively...

I heartily agree with Brandybuck, there is really no reason for hardware manufactures to write closed-source drivers. That's just ridiculous and reduces their usability.

Raphael

Supposedly NVidia "supports" FreeBSD. But if this is the same kind of support they give Linux users, I'm quite surprised that hordes of geeks haven't stormed the NVidia headquarters in protest.

The driver caused infrequent lockups. It doesn't matter how infrequent they were, one lockup is one too many. This alone is unacceptable. The next problem was that I couldn't update my system without breaking the driver. I finally switched to ATI after waiting six months for an update to NVidia so I could upgrade my system. Then there was the wierd problem of never knowing which AGP driver to use. Sometimes NVidia's built in agpgart would work, sometimes it wouldn't and I would have to use FreeBSD's agpgart.

All in all, NVidia on FreeBSD is a hassle. But now that I am using a Radeon 9000 instead of a GeForce MX440, I am getting the same performance and functionality, without any lockups or any problems updating, and with an open source X.org driver.

I think the results of this poll should go to both the Kernel devels and Nvidia so they can stop mucking up the driver everytime a new 2.6 kernel comes out. :)

i have a mobility radeon 9600 on my laptop and it's working for me with 2D/3D support but i had a nvidia geforce2 mx400 on my former desktop machine and the support was far way better for this one...
Nvidia is the best solution for linux systems no doubt about that... i had better performance with my nvidia than the one i have with my new and way better laptop.

Ok I voted other because...Well I always vote other. In the U.S. We have this thing called affirmative action. Whenever you take a job they have you answer all these racial and sex oriented questions in order to not desciminate! Yeah I don't get it either. But as it is I always answer other to all of those q's too. ie..
Racial persuasion
[x] Other
or
Sex
[x] Other hehe
ok I usually answer this with yes or no!
ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTISM FOREVER! :) LOL.

 Have to use nvidia

It's the only card manufacturer that supports Linux as good as winslows. Unfortunately I have to use these proprietary drivers. Why do the H/W manufacturers hide the source code? What are they afraid of? Do they think people would not buy their card if the drivers were open-source? I'd like to have a modern video card with open-source drivers, so I don't have to use proprietary crap.


It is not the size of the hammer that counts. It's how you wield it.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
