I haven't posted in ages but I still had to login just to say this:
Michael, you were right.
He's been saying for years that steam was coming and no one believed him (Valve's semi-denial didn't help). Well now it's here, and you called it...
As long valve think that the catalyst is the official AMD hardware driver and not the official-build-in-Linux-radeon-driver so long they can wait for my money.
As long Valve thing closed source drivers are for anything useful than to flush the toilet so long I say to valve : Go fuck yourself!
Oh and I checked it multiple time team-fortress2 is not playable with the open-source driver.
Edit:Catalyst is like having AIDS it does not hurt you for many years but it will always fuck you so hard than you die because of this.

There's also been a lot of fixes recently in Mesa and the kernel to prevent lock-ups that were being triggered. A recent 3.8rc kernel and mesa git master should improve a lot of things.
Too bad I already own all the ones I want. I always miss the sales. Oh well time to kill a bunch of CS newbs, later.
But Who cares? the only point who do care is: valve lie to the people and tells them they should install the catalyst.
Its like a AIDS junkie tells other healthy people it is so much better to be a AIDS patient because then you get welfare because you are sick person.
No having aids or installing catalyst is not a solution !
Valve go fuck yourself! I'm sick of cheap excuses !
Both are diseases but catalyst is a mental one and HIV and cancer is a disease of the body.
I'm sure right now you are on more ignore lists here on phoronix than my person.
Does this make me dumber than them only because i get it 9 years faster?
Try to Extra polish this information on the tropic from now one in 9 years the mental slow people @ valve get the point and switch to open-source drivers? LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!
and be sure valve is just "slow" but you are really stupid.
