    A "real gamer" probably would still use Windows to play games, as there are much more games. Then again, the term "real gamer" is just wrong in so many ways, as if being a gamer was some kind of...

    He probably wanted to hear that he's a hero for being rude towards developers who're giving their best and he's most certainly sure that it was his rudeness that got them working.

    Personally I believe we're seeing what has happened in the past already: vendors trying to monopolize a market by locking out every competitor. Then after some time a new competitor shows up who...

    QFT, that's the whole problem with asking for native ports only. Steambox (if it gets ever released) might change that a bit, also the fact that porting to Linux is now much easier than ever but even...

    A wild guess as it happens without any specific software version: your GPU might become too hot, as the radeon driver does not have real dpm before kernel version 3.11.

    I don't really compile it myself, there's "mesa-git" on Arch Linux for that and the maintainer is very capable, so I don't really want to do stuff he can do better.

    Hmm ok, I guess I'll rip my rig apart tomorrow and replace my 6870 with a backup 5770 that I've still laying around, to corner out what's going on.
    Thanks for the information and taking the time to...
