How to get better ATI drivers for Xorg

Just a quick note... Michael Larabel's post on “How To Get Better ATI Linux Support” is spot on with what we've heard from ATI and from others about ATI in various conversations — if you really want to get their attention, go through their OEM's and resellers, whether that be asking for improvements to their closed source drivers or ports of them to other OS'es, or even opening more specs/sources to the open source community.

(As for the competition, the same goes for them, and Sun is an nVidia reseller, so if there's something missing from their drivers that would encourage you to buy more Sun workstations with nVidia cards, let us know, and we can work it through our channels.)
