Because no one cares about this stuff over there. I already posted like 5 things over there (about Linux) and no one bothers with a reply. Not even a "Linux sucks"
... that's how bad it is.

ATI proprietary drivers work beautifully. They may not have the performance (in some cases there is a 60% gap between Windows and Linux drivers
), but they get the job done. Even when it comes to proprietary stuff, AMD is far more friendly towards Linux than nvidia ever was. Can't wait for Gallium thought; not having hardware accelerated opengl2.x really sucks.
