              Great !

              Guess I should mention again that this actually has nothing to do with Direct2D, we just used a testing flag that was left over from Direct2D development on Windows to enable the new 2D accel code on Linux.

              If we absolutely *have* to have a name for this new accel code let's call it "ATI 2D Acceleration Architecture" or A2AA for short

                    Yeah, neither can I, not sure why. It shows up fine at the link in the first post :

                    http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...2&lang=English

                    ... but not if I navigate there :

                    http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...2&lang=English

                    So go with the link from the first page (ie the first of the two links above) and see if that works. I'll ping the web team.

                          Yeah I tried both those links multiple times, just a blank space where it says the download button should be.

                              there is no separate notebook drivers for fglrx right? Because I can get it to show up ONLY if I go to the main amd driver page and select desktop graphics, and it looks like the same driver.

                                Right. Same driver for all supported GPUs.

                                We have separate mobile drivers for Windows because there is a lot of OEM-specific differentiation, but we only get asked to implement those features on Windows ;(
