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.
