I run the free radeon driver from X.org. I've heard all the arguments
about how the nVidia closed drivers have better performance, but they
have a bad history of interfering with realtime in the past, the kernel
developers hate them, and I don't like binary mystery code that runs as
root from anybody.
The free radeon drivers have been getting better all the time.
