what is necessary for ATI to grasp that comparability is for then to do more than release specs and outdated code, but to have their engineers work with the opensource community and refine the opensource drivers to give them full compatibility. This will also hep ATI because they can use the input of the community to enhance their specifications and technology.

Corporate attitudes about ownership--locked in brain-loops.

As for cards with some age on them, the GeForce 9600 GT has been around a while, no?

That is technically an older card because it is what I used prior to the purchase of the 8400, the 9600 died from a power surge during a storm. MY general rules for hardware purchases is to give them a year to work out the kinks and write stable drivers.

I have currently a 5200, 7300, 8400 and a 9800 Nvidia all working using the Nvidia blobs. I still haven't found a Nvidia card that won't work under Linux with their drivers.

Thanks, I've been eying a 9800 today.
