ATI 3D On Linux

According to this article, the open source 3D drivers for the older ATI R300-R500 graphics processors are much more mature than the newer generation R600/R700. I suspect that this indicates the age of the hardware that most developers own, but I could be wrong. I wish that I had known this before I bought an R600 based card. ^^

Not that it really matters, as cards using the earlier generation processors are quite difficult to find, unless you go the Ebay route. I'm still leery of buying electronics on Ebay. Call me paranoid...
