Yes, I know they are written based off of partial specs. They work very well IMHO. And being as I'm using an FGL 8800, it's pretty fast. And it's great that everything works "out of the box".
Having OSS drivers influences my purchase, I'll probably have intel next time around.
It'd be nice if Mike would pick something like the FGL8800 to use as a reference due to it's OSS drivers and run with it in all benches.(for comparison purposes) That is, until something new comes out with OSS drivers. Then that would become the reference for comparison. But even if he doesn't, I still really like this website.
