While you are correct in your statement and point of view, you are not 
answering the question but in fact are answering something Frederic did not 
ask. He did *not* propose justification for a Windows-only card or one with 
binary drivers, or in fact anything at all which you would find 
objectionable. His question was, as I read it:

"If the ATI Radeon 9200 is recommended as a good cheap solution, what (if 
any) is the recommended solution for a killer, top-of-the-line, 
blow-your-hair-back graphics card where one desires to use all or nearly 
all of the features that card also offers under Windows?"

Basically, he's not "selling out" as you put it but rather "buying in" by 
seeking to buy a top-of-the-line card which *does* have a place in your 
philosophical paradigm. So, is there any such card? If so, I'll immediately 
put it on my short-list for purchase and recommendation to others.
