Thumbs up ATI backing Linux

A while back, there was a online petition asking ATI to provide drivers for Linux users. I guess some of the market still listens to what the customer wants. I plan on building a new machine from the ground up later this year. I plan on at least being a dual boot machine with Linux. If Nvidia doesn't do the same, then I see only one choice for my new video card purchase.

ATI readies big Linux driver push
And claims 22% Doom III boost with ATI Catalyst

ATI IS here in Cyprus to outline its recently announced X700 and Catalyst drivers.
Terry Makedon, a senior product manager, largely talked about those, but he did say the firm is readying a major push in the next few weeks to outline its plans for Linux driver support.

edit: didn't realize Ndvindi had drivers too
