This is the kind of thing that will make a LOT of people reconsider buying NVidia the next time around(I know I will reconsider the next time). This will hurt them going forward.
I just bought a GTX670, so I'm out of the market for a year or two... that being said, I'm resenting Nvidia for a lot of the same reasons I resent Microsoft, Apple and most Cell phone manufacturers... ...as in once I buy this it's mine to do with as I please. I don't get why computer hardware manufacturers are so pig-headed about this.
My only reason for going with Nvidia, was that they had better support for Linux, now that Steam is launching on Linux, it will most definitely bring in better Linux drivers on the ATI front, and I'll most likely be crossing the floor next time around.
What a load.--
