Linux 3D AGP GPU Roundup: More Cutting Edge Penguin Performance

Anandtech has thrown together an article detailing video card performance in Linux.
It's true that installing NVIDIA drivers on Linux is almost as painless as installing the drivers on Windows; when the SuSE Yast Online Updates are up to date, installing via the online update is actually easier than Windows. ATI's drivers, on the other hand, gave us several problems - so much so that we actually ended up re-doing the analysis a few times with different kernels/motherboards just to get it right. The lack of 64-bit ATI drivers also prevented us from doing a fair 64-bit binary comparison of our game lineup.If you're using Linux on your desktop, you'll probably want to read this article.
