Gnome shell and ATI Did it work well?
I missed enlightment E17 and Pantheon alpha, Mate, openbox, razor qt, and fluxbox.
But I have an ATi HD 4250 and i have not been able to run Gnome Shell or Cinnamon with catalyst drivers because a bug in Mutter / ATI
How did you solve this bug?
Is it bypassed anyway?
I do like to have installed 3 distros / experimental now sabayon + backup LMDE + main Mint12.
And test every desktop.
1 consideration Ubuntu Gnome is not true Gnome - at least I have just read the only way of a "true" gnome in ubuntu is installing in text mode the server version and from the console install Gnome from Gnome PPA
2 If there are a way of use Gnome Shell with my integrated ATI HD 4250 I would like to know the trick. i also have a Nvidia 9600, but I do not want to plug in it only to test Gnome 3.
3. Perhaps in other post, E17, Pantheon, Openbox alone and +KDE and +Gnome, Mate, Cinnamon, razor qt and fluxbox, as alternative desktops - Or any other one i miss - would be nice to be tested.
4.- As at any good article, as i use to read here, i do like to read the 5W, and I would like to read something about why the Catalyst driver is almost independent from the desktop in gaming, and Nvidia graphic drivers aren't. also I would like to know this tests in other OSs as MS WOS and OSX - perhaps it will never happen at phoronix, i do not know why - and some explanation of why the difference of performance between one drivers or others. In this case the lack of standard deviation in AMD drivers I do not know if is better or worse because it is a maximum for all or a minimum for all, what I can imagine more if I have the same tests with other OSs.
Thanks in advance, I enjoyed a lot reading this article, but I always have more questions when I read something like this. And if you do not answer this nobody else will do it at my feeds. Because you are my best Linux benchmark blog, and perhaps the best over the net.
