I was going to say, what Linux user can even FIND an S3 GPU to use? Outside of some very ancient IGPs in P4/Athlon XP era hardware their stuff is exceedingly hard to find.
A few years ago I went looking for one of their dedicated PCIe GPUs as they had supposedly released 2 models that where supposed to be competitive with the low end from AMD and NVidia. After a week of searching and finding no shop that carried them and only finding one small time review site that was even sent these GPUs I gave up.
If you are curious, heres the review of the S3 Chrome 500 series PCIe cards against what AMD and Nvidia cards where in the price range at the time. http://8000.hillbillyhardware.com:80...tx/540gtx.html
