Most of OpenGL 3 works, only GLSL support is slow to arrive.
Last time I checked there were still major problems with many games and wine and the lightning in Amnesia was broken.
Maybe I will have to check again soon, but I doubt I can yet use it permanently on my laptop. It's "only" a HD 6550 (= HD 5650, thanks AMD for renaming cards into higher series) but it still little differences in the drivers are significant differences in battery consumption.
I'm following the open source drivers development. They are amazing, and the people behind them too. From time to time I test them, but for now I don't want to hear a turbine next to my ear. I know that this is improving, and in the near future I will use only open source ones for all things.
I want to say also that catalyst aren't a bad drivers, but I think they are more focused to enterprise costumers.
