Makers of fine graphics card. But provider of shit linux drivers.
Yeah ati hardware rocks, but the linux driver support is awful. Try an nvidia card until ati get their shit together
A Canadian computer hardware company, ATI Technologies (spelt ATi) is well known for their Radeon line of graphics chips. Their greatest rival is nVIDIA, and the two companies are forever in a war to outdo each other. As a result, there's an almost equal split between ATi and nVIDIA graphics card owners, who are also in a perpetual state of slagging each other off. (see fanboy)
fanATIc: GET THE RADEON!! NV SUCKZZZZ!!11!
nVIDIOT: GET THE GEFORCE! ATI SUCKZZ!!1!1
Normal person: I'll get the one that's the best performance / value.
1. noun; A company that makes video cards.

a little bit of ATi's history.
ATi was founded in 1985 and worked primarily in the OEM field, it produced integrated graphics cards for large PC manufacturers like IBM and Commodore. They made Graphics chips for Game systems like the wii (codenamed Hollywood, which is a modified version of the gamecube chip called flapper) ATi also made the graphics core for the XBOX 360 (codenamed Xenos).
July 24, 2006, AMD and ATI announced a plan to merge together where they would go on to make graphics cards with poor Pixel shader support and a notoriously bad driver set for Linux. Also noted not to work with MS Dos in graphics mode.
Windows user: I just got a new ATi card, I'm going to OWN so hard in Halflife 2 now!
Linux user: Oh grate an ATi card, I just love having 10 fps in Quake arena.
Graphics card owned by AMD, by far the best kind.

Activist Times, Int. Zine.
A Text Webzine published every week since
1988. Because ATI existed long before
ati graphics cards, and all the other
corporations, the editor and publisher
managed to win lawsuits and become the new owner and operator of every single thing using the letters A.T.I. including the bussing company and even the one in dictionary defition #1 above. ;)
Hey, hey hey!
"...and perhaps the highly anarcho-political
"ATI zine was a hacker zine back in the day, much like TAP/YIPL, 2600, Reality Hackers, Mondo 2000, LOD tech manuals and Phrack. Over time, topics shifted to include Anarchy, Music and Poetry, which is pretty much what ATI specializes in nowadays. But because it's completely submission driven (except for what the publisher puts out during dry weeks) many other topics are always just as welcomed. (AND the writer's an IMCsta!)"
