    Hi all,

    Something for Linux users with old hardware: a tutorial explaining how to install graphic drivers for old and unsupported cards in Ubuntu plus a rant about the general attitude of abandoning support for old hardware in modern and popular Linux distributions.

    Cheers,
    Mrk

    I think ubuntu should at least have a statment with the restricted drivers dialog telling you the card is still supported but is supported by ubuntu and give some info about how to install it.
