    Are you describing the driver or the parent company? Might be true in both cases.
    Just the driver.

      how about ubuntu-ish naming?

      8.39 - absolute atrocity
      8.40 - bad blob
      8.41 - crappy code
      8.42 - deferred debug
      8.43 - elusive errors
      8.44 - fluggish fquirrel (okay, i didn't know what to make up here)

      and so on....

        I was going for the "I should have gotten an nVidia edition" but someone already sorta beat me to it...

        "C'monalready edition"
        "Are you f-ing kidding me? edition"

                8.53 - "we use windows edition"
                8.54 - "what is gcc? edition"
                8.55 - "AIGLX? as in Another Irresistible Great Letter X ? edition"
                8.56 - "just use windows edition"
                8.57 - "we can't code, we're just cleaning here edition"

                  8.39 - "A update only noticeable through a microscope"

                  8.40 - "ATI/AMD Linux Catalyst Drivers: Crash a-lot Edition"

                  8.41 - "Bits of AIGLX code found, but no implementation Edition"

                  8.42 - "ATI/AMD Linux Catastrophe Drivers: The name says it all."

                  8.43 - "I smell AIGLX, oh wait, nevermind."

                  8.44 - "The still no performance improvement edition."

                  8.45 - "The last release, and sadly, the most pointless."

                  Thats my prediction. Of course it could go in any order, not just the order I specified above. Maybe with the exception of the last release one, but I had to end the list haha.

                  Also I think that if AMD is going to put money into a linux division, they should do it right. Either that, or just release the specs and don't have one at all if they're not going to do anything.

                              I was being nice My original title for that one involved a buyout of some sort, but then I realize they'd already been bought out, so I just re-routed it :3

                                8.39: What you expected

                                Same maintenance/nothing-new-for-the-end-user type of driver. Seriously now, would you expect anything else?!
