    to be fair, yes I have seen the problems with it, but I think they are surmountable, I might go intel though after such encouragement

    now the case.... I am limited on space gotta get that measuring stick out again

        my thoughts exactly.

        when radeonhd gets better and more functional ati will most likely make and add-on blob to it with all the proprietary stuff getting (optionally) linked at build-time :]

          If it does that it'll have to change it's windows driver as well since they've gone to an integrated driver for both.

          Taking a blob of code out of it and just expecting it to work without being completely rewritten for radeonhd is like believing in fairies and pixie dust.

            i didn't say that. i said "ati will most likely make and add-on blob", basing on radeonhd codebase :]

            i'm not sure about licensing issues. that might make it impossible.

              It would not be impossible, Intel added such a hook into the open driver too, but I do not know of an available binary blob for it. Then optional DRM is the only thing that would be added that way nobody would have something against it (as it would not be required). Also Matrox has such a way to load something - I just never tested this as Matrox cards are very uncommon nowadays.

                So it seems no specs for X-mas
