Given the statements at:
and the statements that used to be on Thomas Winischhofer's page (that
page has disappeared now), you're better off talking to SiS directly,
and making it clear that they will be made irrelevant in the Linux
desktop business if they don't change their ways.

I don't think it's up to GNOME to ensure that decent 3D drivers are
available for each and every video cards available.

The only thing that I can advise you is:
- Contact SiS yourself about this
- Advertise the fact that SiS based machines aren't suitable for Linux
desktop usage

Jonh, I think if you work with the board, you could contact them on behalf of the GNOME Foundation which much carry more weight. I'm sure there are other organizations that would be willing to contact them as well if we reach out to them.
