Phoronix: Linux Consumers Should Still Avoid S3 Graphics
Whenever writing about VIA Technologies on Phoronix, S3 Graphics always comes to mind due to its relations with HTC and VIA. In fact, it's the only time that S3 Graphics usually ever comes to my mind aside from when talking about S3 Texture Compression. Anyhow, after writing this morning about the VIA KMS driver still not being mainline, it's worth reminding uninformed Linux users that S3 Graphics products remain poorly supported under Linux...
Um, not much of news here. Still sad since I wouldn't be surprised if HTC uses some of these Chips in their mobile phones and that would be a much larger number probably than the installations of these chips in "real" computers.
But then, as 89c51 stated, about nothing out there is hassle free.
