Poll question: Linux users: ATi or Nvidia?
Nvidia: Easy to install, with integrated 3D support.

ATi: Hard to install; machine has to be coaxed to get 3D operational. (I haven't gotten it to work yet...) Of course, when it's finally configured it's a scream because ATi's best card (9800 Pro) cremates Nvidia's (5900FX).

What say you?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. ATI for winders
I have all ATI cards for windows, but have heard good things about the nVidia driver for linux. ATI linux driver has come along way as well.

2. Nvidia. Definitely.
I have an FX5200 in my machine. The drivers for it installed in seconds and after a little editing, they worked like a charm.

Note: Before you install the drivers, make sure you have installed the source that corresponds to the kernel you are running.

3. I spent the better part of a Saturday cussing
and screaming at a ATI card that I was trying to install in Linux.
If I had known that Sat. Morning what the day was going to be like,
I swear, I would have just stuck the Fuckin' card in my Hamilton Beech Blender (set on High)... so it couldn't torture me.
