Heh... We know better, all right.
Better to not acquire them right at the moment. There's some rumblings that VIA's management may be taking us quite a bit more seriously and possibly giving us more than just the time of day- but right now, they're just rumblings. The 3D support's even worse than some of the vendors' lowlights on some of their lineup.
I'd avoid it like the plague for right now. I'd use my AMD R420 or Rv515 boards first- and I don't use them because there's some issues with the drivers that preclude me running with anything but NVidia right at the moment.
