If encouraging vendors to open their specs so that you can have maintainable
3D drivers is important to you, consider buying an R200 based ATI card.
As far as I can tell, ATI is the only company providing the techincal
information about their cards (and even then not for the current R300
based cards) so that 3D open source drivers can be written.

If you just throw out your old video cards, you may not care. But if you
think you might want to use an old card in a new kernel and take advantage
of 3D features, you are going to need an open source driver to exist.
