    Fully supported graphics cards?


    I wasn't sure where to put this so...

    Anybody know where there is a list of fully supported graphics cards? I've been looking around but I can't find anything. In a few months I'll be looking to get a new laptop and that's probably going to be the deciding factor.

    Also, I heard that ATI is getting better about their Linux support. Is this true?

    Are there any companies that support all their cards for Linux?

    Thanks.

    It depends on what you mean by support. Do you mean they are supported by free/open source drivers of are properitary drivers ok? Do you need 3d support or just 2d?

    The driver can be open source or proprietary. And I need 3d support. I'm on a sis 760 chipset now and it wants to kill itself every time it sees animation.

    I think most of the intel graphic cards do 3d in linux (real free/open source) and nvidia requires a properitary driver, but the install is pretty easy. From what I know ATI cards are still awful (except for the older ones, for which there is a quality open source driver).

    Thanks for your help. I'm kinda amazed that intel is being linux friendly though. I guess I'll just go with a laptop with an Intel Core 2 Dua processor and 950 integrated graphics.
