There is 3D support for their newer cards in Xorg 6.9, and they have always
been more friendly to free software than nvidia was. They where on the edge i
believe and don't provide specs for newer cards, but they are not militantly
against free software like nvidia is. Hey nvidia is even not giving specs to
people wanting to write closed-source drivers, and won't even talk with you if
you have not a 100K chip per month volume.
