What about them?  Last time I used either, the drivers were pretty slow,
and there was no 3D acceleration.

I had a half-working Mesa setup on a Matrox, but it was never very smooth.

With Linux and nVidia, it just works.  I hate that because we need
more alternatives for video cards (I like ATI Radeons better myself),
and I hate to see this Linux-only stuff starting.  It's as bad as the
Windows-only situation to me.
