  1. finally, open source drivers that will work with a laptop (without melting it)

    Well, better late than never :-) I expect that in about 6 months when this starts making it into Linux distros that I will be able to start recommending AMD hardware again. I hope your CPU people...

    fair comparison?

    The performance of a 10 year old version of Excel is probably not a fair comparison to the current version of Calc. I am sure that Excel 2010 is slower than Excel 2000. For what it's worth, I have...

    tens of thousands??

    Admittedly I probably have not pushed Calc as hard as some. If I have serious statistics to do, I generally switch to R rather than using a spreadsheet.

  7. further thoughts

    This hardly seems to be a fair comparison. If ATI/AMD were a bit more open about their proprietary hardware, then the free software drivers could progress more rapidly. The free software drivers...

    A lot of hard work, effort, and time goes into free software as well. Part of the reason that free software progresses faster than proprietary software is that it is a constant race. The people who...
  9. proprietary Catalyst drivers pain in the rear

    Have you tried to use the proprietary Catalyst (Crapitalist?) drivers with Linux? It's a constant pain in the rear. X gets updated, but Catalyst no longer works with X. So you try to install some...
  10. 6000 series still doesn't work

    Not really sure what to find exciting about this while I still cannot use the open source drivers with the 6000 series on my laptop (HD 6620G + HD 6750M). The power management is so inexcusably bad...
