Sidenote question: Do the new linux catalyst drivers incorporate crossfire? I haven't checked in a while and I was curious.
Nvidia drivers give as much hassle as the ATI drivers, so there is really no excuse aside from GPU preference. In fact, ATI cards have better open source drivers, so if anything, they give the best "noob" experience.
As for crossfire, it probably won't come out for a long time, but I remain hopeful, what with AMD going the mullti GPU path for their flagships.

You don't have to use Wine. You have to decide whether you want to stick with your Windows games, or hunt down some Linux games to play. Think of it as a console.
