I'm running an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro on Ubuntu 7.10 (Intel Pent D). I
was contemplating the pain/nightmare of adding the fglrx drivers when
I first started testing 7.10 (at Tribe 4 version) and was blown away
by the "one click" to add restricted drivers - they work like a champ
on bzflag (although I do have the desktop "visual effects" junk turned
OFF). This may not be as fast as a good Nvida card but the ease of
driver installation makes me a happy camper.
