I have a Palit GeForce 6500 PCI-E 256Mb/64bit and I'm running x

Until NVidia decides to provide proper documentation for their cards,
I'd avoid them and go with an ATI product.

Hmm, Nvidia cards generaly work much better on FreeBSD as well as solaris
then ATI cards. I would never buy a card on its documentation quality.

I believe DW was referring to the engineering "documentation" of the underlying hardware, so that a proper open source driver could be developed. Not the "Users Guide".

Without proper docs, an open source drive can not be developed. Hence everyone is forced to use whatever NVidia decides is worth developing.
