    I'm completely confused.

    AFAIK *before* AMDTI disclosed details about their cards, there was one open source driver trying to support ATI cards through reverse engineering. Is this correct? Was...

    Ubuntu "restricted driver"

    Reading articles like this is bittersweet. I love that there is such coverage but I don't have any point of reference. Installing the AMD driver manually has been a shite in the past. However I've...

    This news makes very little sense. I was told in an IRC chat that the Radeon driver was dead, that it was a case of RadeonHD slowly becoming usable and the proprietary driver as the only two options....
