You could, i don't know, contribute to the upstream project?

Of course, if the people running the project don't take contributions, then there isn't a huge difference. That's exactly why a lot of people don't like the stuff Canonical is doing, for example, or the projects Oracle/Sun have taken over like OpenOffice. But even then, you can still download the source and make your own modifications locally, even if you can't support an entire fork.
Really, come on. This is FOSS 101 stuff here. I know you're just trolling, but this is ridiculously stupid.
+1 Thank you for catching this, and yes those people have egg on face. :p

Thanks to open source drivers developers!
No Unigine benchmarks
Nice work, however:
1) The games used for benchmarks are obsolete. At least add Unigine Valley benchmark.
2) Modern graphics cards are not included.
This benchmark is about the fact that the R600g driver has caught up with Catalyst.

Michael explained it in the first paragraph of the article, actually.
