Both, ATI and nvidia "closed drivers" are being rejected at the same 
level by kernel developers that think this is not the way to go.

Both, ATI and nvidia "free drivers" (nv/nouveau and radeon/radeonhd) 
still lack the same functionality level that the closed driver 

ATI provides even a worst scenario to some people that cannot get their 
old cards working at all, neither with free drivers nor closed drivers 
which do not support "legacy models").

So in fact, we get from ATI no much more than from nvidia :-/
