Ok I can give you alot of experience here, I have installed Gentoo, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and now Mepis 6.0. I have had the ATI driver loaded under all till recently with Ubuntu/Kubuntu. It just quit allowing me to build the sources and load the module. I was the point I was about to give up on the laptop till I loaded Mepis 6.0. Upon installing Mepis and letting it install the ATI drivers, I was really suprised at how easy it was. No hassle and I am up and running the equal to Dapper (6.06) for Ubuntu. I run only linux and develop in linux so it's really not an option just a way of life. I also game on the Sager 8790, mostly native games like NeverWinter Nights, Doom3, Terminus, Quake3, Unreal Tournament and a few others. I do run Cedega and Cross Over Office for other occassional apps that have to be run to accomplish certain goals. I am also the owner of a site that I need folks for, http://www.linuxgamingcommunity.org/ it has the default mambo page up right now. I seen sites come and go, I really want a site that supports Linux gaming from native to Cedega and CxOffice. I also have been a part of the forums of those sites and found information posted but in such a way that it never has been really helpful. Anyone interested in helping out and spreading the word to help expand the linux community can contact me at email@example.com. Also any with questions needing help don't hesitate to contact me.
