    When I first read the article, I was ecstatic. I had been avoiding ATi/AMD for graphics on Linux for the longest time. I am a former ATi R300 owner. I totally loved that card (R9500), but I got it just around the time I went 100% Linux and I tried to be patient and held on as much as I could. Finally I went with and nVidia card. These news are great. Finally ATi/AMD is presenting nVidia with some real competition in the Linux ground, and this could prove more beneficial to ATi/AMD than expected, as I've read all over the place the 2900 isn't doing too well on Vista either... Maybe this here is material for another investigative article about the performance Delta in Vista and Linux of the 2900, even with "small talk" about how well does it fair and handle the desktops eye candy effects on each platform and how does it fair in gaming, both with eye candy on and eye candy off.

    Code:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 AS [Radeon 9550] (prog-if 00 [VGA])
            Subsystem: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device 0402
    does just fine with the fglrx drivers from 8.27 on out ... I even get decent framerates at 1440x900 WoW in wine - - not great mind you - - but playable

    Can someone post the output of the xvinfo command on an X1000 series card.

    I hope I can finally watch TV under Linux.

    Well, simply put, I was getting mostly interactive frame rates in most programs, but albeit my friends with nVidia comparable cards of the time (FX series) were getting twice as much as I was, at the very same resolutions.

    You could just subscribe to the Phoronix RSS (http://www.phoronix.com/rss.php) and you will know for sure when the driver is released... along with other great Linux content
