The free drivers work for a lot of OpenGL things.  Tuxracer works great
and glxgears shows 1800fps on my T40p.  I'm using the stock driver right
now, but the medical imaging package that I use incorrectly renders some
scenes and is painfully slow for some other things that I do
frequently.  It works correctly using the binary ATI drivers under
Linux, Windows, Mac OS/X, and Solaris.

I'd love to feed a sample program back to the driver authors so that the
open-source version could be fixed, however right now the problems are
tickled by a combination of software that is quite large and not
necessarily simple to build.  Not really ideal.
