I've tried Ubuntu on so many computers* and the graphic drivers for Linux really sucks(* haven't tried Nvidia). Before i decided to sell my dell 1501 i installed the lastest ati driver but seriously it's like playing around with windows 98, compiz work pretty good though. Gaming and watching HD movies was a big joke so i really hope the drivers for the via card is better then the drivers from AMD.
Via is working hard on their drivers and they recently released beta drivers click here to check it out. I will release an install guide for the drivers, probably next week.
If someone already installed them please post a comments and/or suggestions!
