I have enabled sna, because well uxa is slow.
I'd rather have a intel driver update than a mesa update. There is a really annoying bug in the version of xorg-x11-drv-intel in f20 which is fixed in 2.9<something>
But why is nobody working on it, if it's quite doable and needed for OpenGL 3.3 compliance? I do not presume to know about AMD's priorities, but I assume that it's not as easy as you make it out to...
I have the impression there are some fundamental architectural flaws in radeonsi.
Why is fglrx so much faster?
Performance parity with the proprietary drivers.
If you have complete opengl coverage but it is still as slow as molasses, you still can't use it.
The latter, thanks for the answer.
Does anyone know if this makes it feature complete against the vmware stack?
Michael had the rumour that steam was coming to linux correct, so cut the guy some slack.
AFAIK Codeweavers make most of their money from selling to OSX users.
If you install all of texlive then its indeed a few gigabytes. But then you get everything, all optional packages, all languages, all documentation. Basic LaTeX is not that much. Try playing with the...

My last real kernel panic is years ago. Now talk to me about lock-ups. :-(
You most likely will have to wait for the next stable release if you prefer stable. So two years or so. But the debian kernel team is reasonably fast in putting newer kernels in experimental, so...

Wow! So bridgman's claim that the HD8xxx generation would have launch day support from free software is true. Have any gentoo/ubuntu xorg-edgers people already used this?
Has google made any statement as to when youtube will have webm with vp9/opus/vorbis?
They didn't invest all that money in patent-free codecs to not use them.
Who cares as long as it is good enough.
AFAIK understand Gnome classic mode it still requires graphics hardware which can do 3d. So not everyone can even run gnome 3. The very first thing I did after I upgraded my laptop from squeeze to...
That's funny, since IIRC the most vocal supporters and the originators of gnome shell are all on the payroll of Red Hat.
