I hear ati is getting it in gear with their dirvers now that so many
hign-profile games (read: doom3) are being released with a native
linux client. I use ATI myself, but only because nvidia cards seem to
cause hardware instability with my chipset. However, they haven't
been that bad, although I haven't tried tvout yet.
