Serious ATI bug makes Vista virtually unusable for some

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the past few weeks I’ve been working on trying to isolate a problem 
| between Windows Vista and ATI graphics cards where the display driver stops 
| responding and sometimes recovers and sometimes doesn’t.  


ATI performance may be better in Linux than in Vista (open source drivers
aside). No wonder support for Linux among game makers is increasing.

Computer role-playing games for GNU/Linux

| Of all the various types of computers games out there, my favorite is the 
| computer role-playing game, or CRPG for short. Almost everyone has heard of 
| classic CRPGs like Ultima, Baldur’s Gate, and Fall Out, but what about free 
| software CRPGs? In this article, I take a peek at what’s out there.   



ATI: Linux vs. Windows Vista

| Wow! We were completely blown away when our final results came in and the 
| Linux 8.42.3 driver had outperformed Windows Vista with Catalyst 7.10 in 
| Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. It wasn't just a neck-and-neck race but Linux 
| was about 10 frames per second faster when running at 1280 x 1024 and 1680 x 
| 1050.

| This was not a scientific study - only a small test which confirmed what I 
| thought I had "felt" already while using Second Life on my new PC.

| Long story short - World of Warcraft runs faster under Ubuntu/Wine than 
| natively under Windows XP Professional. 


Does WINE + Linux support more Windows apps than Vista?

,----[ Quote ]
| WINE supports most of the applications which are made for Windows
| 2.0 up to Windows XP. WINE has the ability to run different versions
| of IE, run most of Adobe's products, run World of Warcraft, Half Life
| 2, Microsoft Office 2003, XP, 2000 and 97, Visio, Quicken,
|     * Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
|     * Need for Speed Carbon
| [...]
| What about drivers, hardware support, and upgrades?
| Want to upgrade you XP to Vista? no chance. might as well do a fresh 
| install and shell out $300.
