How well does the G550 support OpenGL?  (I was running the nv
driver, but installed the evil-closed-source-binary driver when I
downloaded G/E.)


    Graphics card requirement for Google Earth

        The 3D graphics capabilities of your machine have a lot to
        do with how well Google Earth performs. Google Earth will
        work on most graphics cards from the following

            * NVIDIA
            * ATI*
            * 3D Labs
            * Intel**
            * Matrox
            * S3

    * The following ATI cards are not supported: ATI Rage Mobility,
    ATI Xpert, ATI 3D Rage.
    Matrox card users must use the OpenGL version.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
