Ask Slashdot: Which is most committed to Linux? -- AMD | nVidia | Intel

skade88 (1750548) writes | about a year and a half ago


skade88 (1750548) writes "Ten years ago today (21 Nov, 2002) ATI, now owned by AMD announced to the world how they were committed to providing the best drivers for Linux the world has seen. On Nov 6, 2012 nVidia released new updated drivers for Linux that offer a huge boost in performance. Intel does provide driver support to the FOSS community, with what seems like little fan fair.

Seeing these big press events is great and all, but how do things stack up in reality for the end user? What have been your experiences with getting performance out of the big three players in the graphics industry? Do the promises of support from AMD/ATI, nVidia and Intel ring true when you get your hands on their software and hardware? What is your wish list for improvements from these companies?"
