I only know one person who uses it. He's never complained. He uses it
with Matrox and ATI hardware. I don't remeber he he mixes and matches
brands when he does it.
I'd use it, but I don't have any slots for a second video card. Sound,
video capture, ethernet, and scsi fill my PCI slots, and I have a cheap
AGP voodoo3 (that really needs to be replaced. I bought it because I
thought it would be the best supported for linux 3D acceleration, but I've
never gotten it to work in accelerated mode under either Xfree 3 or 4).
Maybe, if I'm lucky, the replacement will be a G450 Max(I don't know if
the Geforce MX dual head cards are supported under linux).
