Why is anyone praising this? Distro companies have started implementing additional ways to get users on *their* distro, now it's "I've got the exclusive driver over here!"? Exclusivity is the exact opposite of being open. All Linux users should have equal access to drivers for their cards. This makes me not want to support AMD if they are going to try to help further segregate the Linux platform. AMD should have a developer site of some sort where this driver is available, and everyone should be able to get it from there.
