What if one restricts the choice to cards with decent non-proprietary
drivers? I'd also sort of like a modern gfx card one of these days
(e.g., with programmable shader units), but I certainly don't want to
support the obnoxious software policies of the big two (Nvidia & ATI).
Is there any chance that Nvida/ATI will someday be a bit more enlightened?
