Default ATI has new Linux driver for download

NVIDIA HAS KICKED ATI hard with the quality of its Linux drivers and all of my Linux-friendly friends tell me how Nvidia is several light years ahead of ATI in Linux driver development. I heard some horrible stories from high end IT specialists, admins and programmers who told me that ATI's driver don't even have hardware cursor and that it's damn hard to install it. I actually tried it and it was a true nightmare.
But ATI is now releasing a new driver - mainly bug fixes and new product support but as we reported from Cyprus, it is doing something about its Linux driver line up.

The new driver will add support for FireGL V5100, V3200 and V3100, Mobility Radeon 9800 and X800, X600 and X300 - all PCIe versions.
