If we see beyond the CUDA part of this question, it should be noted that
ATI/AMD has kept to their promise of actually supporting opensource.

I must admit not having tested that code myself (my two 5970s sit in a
windows box), but projects should maybe consider the ATI/AMD cards.
928GFLOPS double-precision per card (4.64TFLOPS single precision) with
proper documentation should at least give a proper start to things...
