niche. Smallest unit of a habitat that is occupied by an organism. A habitat niche is the physical space occupied by the organism; an ecological niche is the role the organism plays in the community of organisms found in the habitat. Nothing to do with word smart whatsoever. Used was used metaphorically. I agreed I said something wrong, but I apparently I didn't. You don't know what you were talking about. Over and out. Don't bother answering, as you are attacking my words and not my idea, where idea is clearly given.

I wont come on offensive here. I have already explained how over half of population of US vote twice for Bush. Absence of intelligence to make proper comparison of products obviously is not helping. Geeks created Apple empire, and they will kill it. No one believed me that windows will go into decline. It does now. Mark my words, fanboys will wake up. Most fanboys are not necessary stupid people. Just stubborn ones.

Don't know about pure OpenCL. But... Intel, has over all well support and not too bad compared to windows counterpart drivers. It lacks OpenGL 4 features. It only uses OpenGL3. AMD has open source drivers, which mostly suck. Performance in games is rather bad. Same as synthetic tests. Many people report about rather good bitcoin performance. Proprietary drivers are a bit better on performance but worse on stability. Nvidia, has 2 types of drivers. Reverse engineered ones, which suck and blow when it comes to performance and binary ones. Nvidia with binary drivers has highest performance + stability in games. It's on pair with AMD on bitcoin stuff. In reality no one can say what is good for OpenCL in Linux, because there are no OpenCL apps in Linux. I am no Nvidia fanboy, but i am Nvidia user for a while. They are safest bet on quality/performance, but AMD may as well worth your while, especially if you are dev and don't mind reporting issue to kernel devs, etc.
