So all the people with GeForce's in macs should have to buy ATI cards?
That is a subpar solution, and ridiculous in my mind.

That means nothing.  It doesn't mean they will not help us get things
going on macs.  I have a few contacts at nVidia and they have helped  a
LOT recently with the support so far, so if they didn't care at all then
we wouldnt be as far as we are now.

Just because it isn't working today, doesn't mean it won't work tomorrow.
ATI never helped before, and after R128 they decided to really help, is
that to say we should have given up after mach64?
