Instead, one day you upgrade your distribution to a newer edition and things stop working. JT ATI is full it! Let's put aside the problems I've observed, which are accidents and bugs, not deliberate decisions to not support certain hardware.

For instance, a kernel abstraction free DRM driver using natively Linux internal APIs with a clean GPL only license? :) ATI releases ATI Catalyst 10.1 drivers with Ubuntu 9.10 support (Maximumpc)

Things were back to what they ought And they have discontinued support. To top it off, ATI then gets eaten up by AMD in the last year or so and now they basically drop support for all of their older products, (and some
The Linux distros are billing their distributions are production ready, when they are filled with Pre-Alpha to Beta-level applications, drivers, services, whatever. This driver is no longer maintained and is OFFICIALLY DEPRECATED by the xserver-xorg-video-radeon driver, which Ubuntu should use by default for any Radeon(HD) chip. It ran Windows XP SP2 without any problems at all. http://tbapplication.com/ati-linux/ati-linux-drivers-ubuntu-9-04.html For more information, see RadeonDriver page.
I checked the FPS performance using glxgears, to see how well the card was performing now. Or at least be able to freely attempt to get said products to function properly in the first place! So putting up with the first 3 insults lets the companies figure you are a sucker, and YOU ARE!!!

In my case, it was not very easy.

Hell, I have an old Barton with 512MB RAM and an Nvidia Gforce2 card stored somewhere, I see no reason why it could not run Linux if I wanted. But there's a catch. The exact instructions how to do that are explained in the PPA. That way the commands will be in your terminal history.

Of course for most of us this would not be a problem if the opensource drivers were fully functional, so maybe ATI ought to release unsupported source code to the community
