ATI Linux Driver improvement sign now

With the ever growing popularity and accesibility of Linux to everyday people we the undersigned urge ATI to dedicate more work time and resources to the development of acceptable Linux drivers for their cards. Currently the ATI drivers for Linux are lacking many of the features that should exist and most of the features that the competition (Nvidia) provides.





Trough refusal to dedicate a decent amoutn of resources to the development of ATI Linux drivers ATI is not only causing annoyance among all those with an ATI card who wish to explore the possibility of Linux, but they are also causing profit losses to themselves and other companies.





Most workstations operate on Linux, in that respect ATI has little to no grip on the workstation market due to their Linux drivers which are not nearly up to the standard of those made by Nvidia.





We the undersigned believ that ATI should bring their Linux Drivers up the the standard, if not surpassing the standard of the Nvidia drivers, if ATI were to do this they would gain a considerable portion of the Workstation market and a much larger number of people would pruchase an ATI card.





Many people dual boot Linux and Windows, some just use Linux etc...etc...etc... in all said cases however the user will prefer to buy a Nvidia card rather than an ATI card simply due to the fact that the ATI Linux drivers are lacking in many things, which would not be such a large issue for ATI to resolve.





In addition, there is a number of people using Cedega (formerly WineX) on Linux who are unable to take full advantage of it due to the ATI drivers.





There are also many people who would enjoy using an ATI card however do not due to said reasons.





We the undersigned cannot imagine ATI as being a company which wishes to fall behind and eventually fall bankrupt in the shadow of it's competition, so why would ATI want to let it's guard down while there is a blossoming market which they have no hold on due to the lack of quality and support for a given software product.





Hence we the undersigned hereby urge and ask that ATI Technologies Inc. dedicate a larger number of resources to the team which makes the Linux drivers so as to be at the industry standard or higher than the industry standard as set by Nvidia.
