quote from slashdot:

"3DLabs have released linux drivers for their for Wildcat III and Wildcat 4 Graphics accelerators. Being closed source they'll taint your kernel, but what the heck. Press release with penguin-friendly quotes available too." DataSquid has a note about ATI's Linux support: "While on the job hunt, I came across this posting at ATI seeking a project team lead. Last on the list of key responsibilities is "Act as a leader to improve the overall quality of Linux support at ATI." Good news? Certainly better news than what was suggested before."

Oh, no VP support yet, but it's cool nevertheless.

no, no vp yet. -- but -- xigraphics does have support! hoohoo! + they claim to be working towards GL2 support also. This is the stop-gap mesure that allows me to justify trying one of the cheeper vp out, and they are fairly cheep.
