Will AMD also be releasing some kind of documentation for the Flipper?

Dear ATI/AMD developer, in your opinion do you think that assuring basic compatibility with the product that your company and there partner sell to the public should be the number one priority?
off-topic: if being a smart ass about it takes people to think before talking and then to speak out in a manner in which they'd be heard and listen, then i'm happy to be one.
remember that off-topic spam here could bring question to not be easily seen or to question to be asked more than one time because someone just missed it.

I use linux too, and would like for my new card to work on my system, but are we in a position to complain to AMD for not having written the driver yet? Have they suggested that it's working on linux?
Then a more dev-friendly question:
Some companies are using Linux in marketing. I see this as a good thing, and would definitely buy, say a graphics card with a "Works with Linux" pic with Tux on it. When can we see that on AMD graphics card packaging?
To the industry, we're still a niche, when you get right down to brass tacks. Not so much one now as before (we've got AMD's and Intel's attention, as we apparently have Creative's- and possibly even NVidia's...but we still have to deal with the rubbish that the Media companies and Microsoft are shoveling...) but still one all the same. The people making the hardware out there don't yet realize that it's in their best interests to put that little Penguin on their box. Yet.
I believe support for AGP under Windows will be in the next Catalyst driver -- if not then we should try to make the hotfix driver more visible.
I've somewhat followed that issue for a while over at DriverHeaven.net..
I think the Cat 7.7's were the last with agp support..leaving those with newer cards to wait for OmegaDrive to mod them and add in the agp id's..at least for XP.. He hasn't yet released a modded Vista driver that I'm aware of...
At the time I wasn't sure if ATI had dropped support for agp altogether and is the reason I asked if AGP will be supported in the FGLRX driver for the foreseeable future at least.back on page 2 or 3 I think.
