I'm putting together a workstation that will run Fedora and I have a choice between an nVidia Quadro and AMD FirePro video card. I'd prefer to stay away from nVidia, so I was wondering if the recent AMD drivers have good support for Fedora. I can find older information about problems, but not much recent.

AMD has specific drivers for both RedHat and CentOS (separate drivers), and then they have generic "Linux" drivers. I know that RHEL and CentOS are somewhat related to Fedora, so I wondered if this meant Fedora would be supported as well.
