What do you guys think? I have a ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 in my Laptop. I know in the newer versions of Ubuntu and such, you can no longer use the proprietary driver, which I remember to be fairly good, when it worked at all.
However, I know you can no longer use it, and there is an open source effort to bring limited 3D acceleration to this generation of cards. I'm thinking about switching back to Linux (It's been a bit of a back and forth for roughly 2 years now), but I really need this graphics card to work, as I absolutely love playing games.
So, anyone have any good experiences, bad experiences? Other reasons why I should, or shouldn't make the switch? Please, no "Well, if you need this this and this, go with "x" " type posts. Just reasons for and against switching.
Thanks for your advice.
P.S. - I know my way around linux fairly well, and consider myself intermediate to advanced, so if you're going to suggest a distro, don't hesitate to throw out some obscure ones. Thanks again xD
