Because they have a better hardware design team?
And because the linux drivers have way more development effort put into 
them than other linux drivers.

I thought vidix was designed to be a generic, hardware independant 
interface to the BES?  So vidix is really just mga_vid for ati?

VIDIX - Video Interface for *niX.
This library was designed and introduced as interface to userspace drivers
to provide DGA everywhere where it's possible (unline X11).
I hope that these drivers will be portable same as X11 (not only on *nix).
