Nvidia has had excellent Linux drivers for years, open source or not they work. I avoid ATI video as much as possible and it'll take more than token of support on AMDs part to change that now. They may be geniune and may win me over, but I'm not jumping on this bandwagon just yet. I'll keep voting with my wallet in favor of Nvidia for now.

Should Magneto ever clearly win, he'd be generally accepted as a hero. If he were to be clearly defeated he'd be generally seen as a villain. When it's all said and done, the definitions of 'good' and 'bad' are written by the last man standing. Given that, everyone would be a hero, as long as they win.

In addition to helping decipher their Lil Wayne albums, the Justice Department is seeking Ebonics experts to help monitor, translate and transcribe wire tapped conversations. The DEA wants to fill nine full time positions. From the article: "A maximum of nine Ebonics experts will work with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Atlanta field division, where the linguists, after obtaining a 'DEA Sensitive' security clearance, will help investigators decipher the results of 'telephonic monitoring of court ordered nonconsensual intercepts, consensual listening devices, and other media.'”
