If you want open drivers with 3d support get a card with older ati core, no r500/600. Then you could at least run compiz with it...
Wait for the OpenGL 3.0 spec!
I'm running Compiz now on my X1600 no problems (Except the general bugs)

You call it 'no problems' ?
I don't think so.
There is no progress since 8.42, only fake promises, only new bugs.
They promised AIGLX support three months ago - they implemented some "support", but it is still unusable.
Only one hope - open source drivers. I even hope in 2010-2012 I will use my ATI card.
