Thumbs down 100% solution to all ATI problems


Sorry guys but get an Nvidia card, the time wasted isn't worth it in the long run, how hard can it be for ATI to write a half decent set of drivers that work like Nvidia, they obviously don't care or are just unable to do it., I fin that hard to swallow ....................

sorry

sorry for that stupid post but I am so pissed off with ATI cards, I'm using mandrake 10.1 on an Asus a7n8x-e deluxe, I am waiting for the Nforce4 motherboards then I will buy an Nvidia pci-e card.

Not entirely stupid...

I would only add that you should send a postcard to ATI showing them the receipt for your new nvidia card. I've said this before - petitions won't work nearly as well as them seeing real dollars going elsewhere.

That's the only way they might find it worth their while to support linux users.

Sure they would care about potential profit going elsewhere..but keep in mind that we ARE the minority. Considering that us linux users are like 2 or 3 percent of the home market...(if that) I really don't think they lose any sleep by not spending time on us. This is why I applaud nvidia, as they prove that business isn't all about money, but keeping a happy and loyal customer base as well. I also vote that my only ati purchase will most certainly be my last.
