Averatec & ATI

Aparently Averatec & ATI are in cahoots w/ each other. ATI refuses to provide any drivers for the Mobility Radeon 9600 I have in this machine. I’m sorry, even if the machines are specalized, they should at leave have a generic copy of their mobility drivers. Basically what ATI said to me is that they’d like me to shove it – and go buy an NVidia card. Thats fine with me that they don’t want customers – but can’t they at least maintain their own hardware?

Averatec has also blown me off – but thats ok – I found in the BBB that they have a C raiting. Thats… bad.. really bad, for a “young company”. Also intrestingly enough, ATI has a D raiting.
