Wacom and Linux
I bought a Wacom Graphire 4 tablet today, for my daughter. There were 2 versions in the store. One came with Adobe Photoshop and cost around 100$ more. I obviously chosen the cheapest one.
I was convinced that it'll take me 2 days to make it work in Linux, but — surprise — it only took 20 minutes. And now I know why. They support the open-source development of Linux drivers. They provide sample tablets and documentation to open-source driver developers. And for this reason, it almost works out of the box.
I wish ATI would do the same. But they don't, which is why running Linux with an ATI card is nightmare.
Kudos to Wacom. I plan to buy 2 more graphic tablets, and they sure will be Wacom. I'm happy. Thanks guys!
