ATI can bite my ass due to lack of Linux support (and I'm not talking
XFree) on their high-end cards.  

"oh, here's some drivers, but if they dont work on $MAJORLINUXDISTRIBUTION, 
we dont want to hear about it nyah nyah nyah sorry that $500 video card isnt 
supported under linux we dont support linux go away".

Meanwhile, I can download the NVidia drivers and have them work on any 
card from a Riva TNT to a Quadro 980 XGL.  This is one of the reasons that
$WORK is no longer listing ATI high-end cards as certified/supported with
our software.
