"Some support is better than others, but ATI's decision to "fully support" the development of drivers for Linux is a major plus for those programmers who have been looking to use the Linux operating system with some of the industry's top-of-the-line graphics hardware."

"ATI has made tremendous strides in the past year working with key developers on our support for Linux and we are on target to become the graphics company of choice among Linux users," said ATI vice president of corporate marketing, Henry Quan."

"As part of ATI's Linux initiative, the company is releasing 2D, 3D, and multimedia programming specifications for its RAGE graphics technology. ATI has made an arrangement with Precision Insight, a Texas-based Linux software development firm, to produce an open source 2D and 3D driver for the RAGE 128. ATI's RAGE family of processors includes RAGE 128 Pro, which is among the fastest graphics chips on the market."
