The new Cat 10.9 driver works well with Adobe's new flashplayer pre-release square(indentifies as 10.2.. just watched some 720p hd content in fullscreen and a bit of xfinity as well ..haven't tried hulu yet.
Off topic: Wow, where did the sun rise today . 64-bit flash plugin. (10.0 pre-release was working pretty good too.) Although not very surprising given they (pre-)released 64-bit plugins for Windows and Mac too.
they can't the opensource driver need much much more time.
an 50€-100€ card can handle 100% of all features of the opensource radeon driver
do you think amd can make profit on 50€ cards ?
to get an OS driver to have a compareable feature set you need 1-2 years
do you think amd should just stop selling cards for 2 years ?
an R800 is an opengl4.1 card but on os you get 2.1 on 2 years you get ogl3+opencl+gpu-videoacceleration on shaders.
but for this you also can get an hd3870 or hd4670 on second hand marked for 50€
I have now bought and using 110€ card just for opensource(I would very probably go up to 200€, if they were not so power-hungry in idle and there would be HD5xxx support already). There was no support - so I went to 4xxx.
In two years I will be targeting HD68xx and expecting opensource driver. If there are no changes, and it keeps up as current(no new gen drivers, prev-gen drivers require a LOT of setup and lack a LOT of functionality), I will have to seek closed source alternatives.
Cuz here is zero point to support open efforts, if they are just a part of big marketing scheme and are not considered seriously. And dont tell me about linux being voluntare or community, its NOT.
