actually - all of the multimedia apps that I ever use have 64 bit
versions. That hardly seems to be an issue.



Yes, the situation is better now.
But I DO think ATI cards' drivers support 3D apps badly.

The "gears" for my GeForce4 MX440 on F10 is about 1700 FPS.
But the number for my HD1950pro on F11(pre) is never up to 100 FPS!

And the newest ATI drivers from ati.amd.com is always hard to install or not work.
The driver from yum is no more better than "vesa" version.
