    When was the last time you saw Linux Mint's team begging for donations on kickstarter?

    more surprised that they actually managed to get $2000 than anything tbh

    good

    there's absolutely zero reason to keep catalyst closed source when mesa is catching up so fast, at this point it has to just be a duplication of effort

    It's not open source, and it's far behind nvidia's binary blob.
    If I was going to use a binary blob I'd use nvidia.

    Yep, and FWIW I haven't had a single hang since I upgraded. I'd recommend anyone else using open source radeon to upgrade to a kernel with these fixes.

    Good to know, I might pick up the 960 when it comes out, a lot of sites claiming it should be as fast as the 780. Any chance you'll compare the 980s performance on Linux to Windows, Michael?

    Nice, by 2020 I'm sure gnome will have an option to auto hide the panel.

    most people aren't programmers, and even most programmers don't know where to begin on something as advanced as a modern graphics card driver.

    I don't seem to be getting the hangs with 3.17rc6, but I've only tested it for a few hours. I've usually had at least 2-3 hangs by now though, you might want to give it a try.

    doesn't work with chromium, open bug on ubuntu's bug tracker about it.

    AFAIK I still have to downgrade X to 1.15 to install catalyst which sounds annoying, and catalyst isn't that well supported/stable from my experience. I've had issues ever since I got my AMD card.

    Seems like there's some radeon fixes, guess I'll give it a try to see if my desktop can be usable on it.

    I'd probably use the proprietary drivers because AFAIK nouveau isn't ready yet.
    I own an R9 270, I've had constant issues with it. Currently I'm suffering from random crashes using radeonsi and...
  14. State of Nouveau now and in the near future?

    Is Nouveau in a 'usable' state yet? Will it be soon? I replaced my GTX 660 with an AMD card and regret it greatly. I'm probably going to pick up a new 900-series nvidia card shortly, I doubt there...

    And while open source is waiting for this multi-year effort to pay off, proprietary desktops will be leagues ahead because they have no problem hiring the best talent regardless of age, race, or...

    this happens every time someone attempts to cater to a minority group
    surprise, there's a reason they're called a minority group. It's not sexism when there's no women to hire. Now please get rid of...

    I'm not even entirely sure why they're still maintaining their closed source stack on linux so hard when it's obvious the opensource ones will overtake them by next year at this rate...

    can someone layman me what kind of performance I should expect using a pitcairn GPU(r9 270)? I see a bunch of different figures being thrown around(60%, 100%, etc) for different models.
