I started a TNT2 when it was still considered a pretty good card.  I
thought about the nForce.  But then I looked at how much farther along
the ATI Radeons were in terms of software support and stability, when
at the time I got my TNT2, the two manufacturers cards both ran
equally craptastically in Linux.  ATI got the job done by doing what
nVidia needs to have done all along:  release the specs so the
community can attack it on thier own.  Yes, I appreciate nVidia's
effort, but they're crippling it with weird licensing and no specs.
