I'm amazed to hear you write that. I was delighted to find that my Ubuntu can
run nicely on my other computer and use the NVidia video to run even a
"widescreen" monitor. I had resolved that for the next computer I buy, I would
also get an NVidia video system, to "support" them back for supporting Linux,
and to make sure I could run Linux on it.
Was I wrong?
What brands do people prefer for Linux?
I want my next computer to be able to play full-HD movies through an HDMI cable
with mplayer to a widescreen TV :-)
