Hi,there.
I've been wondering the question "Is video card driver really necessary
for my Linux box?(quite dummy,I know)" since the very first time
installation of Fedora~
I mean,the  universal video card driver sailed with fedora is good.
What's more,I broke my fedora when I try to install a ATI driver once~
So would you guys let me know  is there *any* goodies that a video card
driver can do to me?


If you've got video at a decent resolution then you have
a driver specific to your hardware already.  If you use
nVidia or ATI graphics then the manufacturer's drivers
are usually needed for 3D acceleration (including
desktop effects).  Do you have an ATI card?  What type?
