I would agree....    I switched to NVidia long ago when ATI just couldn't 
provide the OpenGL performance that NVidia could.   I think at the time, ATI 
was supplying the support in software versus NVidia doing it in the hardware.  
Quite a difference.

As for FOSS,  I could care less as long as they support Linux in a proper 
manner, and they have.
