You must not remember what things were like a ways back.  I avoided
nVidia hardware for quite a while because I never had good experiences
with them in the '90s.  The ATI stuff generally just worked better
(although getting an X server running was a bit of a headache no
matter what hardware you had).  But there were more choices back then,
too (Matrox, Diamond, #9, Elsa, S3, ...) so avoiding a single vendor
was trivial.
