Best course of action:  stick to Intel graphics, or use the free "nv" driver.

It is my understanding that the ATI (now part of AMD) cards were going to be totally open?


Thank you AMD - I sure hope our driver people take the challenge and make the best driver available!

So, I think it will be a choice between Intel and ATI - not sure which is more open. For applications that don't need 3D like most desktop stuff, I read somewhere that ATI out performs Nvidia.

BTW, Intel has also better about making information available than they get credit for. I think the day is rapidly approaching where they can no longer ignore the OSS community.
