I disagree completely.  The Open Source radeon driver is awesome for
64-bit.  It works great is rock solid and I don't have any trouble with
it at all.

In fact, the latest ATI (Proprietary) drivers are not that bad either,
but since I don't need 3D for anything on this system I haven't setup
that driver.

For the record, I've had nothing but crap experiences with NVidia's
cards in linux (and windows) and will not buy another NVidia card.  So
it's all a matter of personal preference.
