- WINE is not improving linux gaming stack. It is not native and you need to buy windows games and you need nvidia card, because nvidia uses windows drivers on linux.
- I dont understand the purpose of FGLRX and the whole DRM stuff. If someone likes to watch encrypted DVD/Bluray junk I would understand it. DRM will always be cracked, it highers the production costs and prevents writing software - it is garbage. But I dont buy hollywood movies anyway: they are ugly and with same plot(have a picture of how to "make a hollywood scenario in 1 minute" schema somewhere); all movies that I watched were in theaters, since they are almost all "disposable", like cigarettes or LAW(one use - throw away). Maybe District 9 was single exception from this.
And if AMD wants to protect their intellectual property, why not to use GPL on drivers? Samsung is already sued for silently using busybox. AMD, look how Toshiba does with its TVs!
- I have no problem with choices, but the only graphics accelerator manufacturer (of the two), who supports opensource and creates native stack(instead of porting stuff back from other OSes) is AMD. You might work as a software engineer and make money this way; but I see no problem for some serious GAMING shift to linux. Even if I dont game often. Creating games is a job too and being in need to buy windows license every 4 years along with antivirus and support company which HATES opensource, just to play 2-3 games 3-4 times in a month - can see some improvent imho. Currently linux users have to keep and pay windows which uses this money to establish itself over linux. This is wrong.
Hope you can understand my point without spilling flames, like a dragon. Peace out.
