    Congrats, Marek, and a big thank you to AMD for keeping hiring open source developers (I am sure bridgman has something to do with this )

    It's a great day to be a Linux user. I remember back in 1995. THAT was tough

    In just a few words, "The independent Mesa contributor Marek Olšk" is not independent any more
    I will drink for your good, Marek!

    With all this work on radeon I'm gonna have to go back on my never-buy-anything-AMD-evar approach... I love you nvidia, but Optimus killed it for me.

    Well Optimus grew out of Nvidia having been forced out of their chipset market as a way to try and stay relevant in some way in the bulk consumer market. But it's such a kludge that it's costing them mindshare.

    Default Looks like Marek has been tasked onto the SI drivers

    So hopefully we can start expecting those to get a lot better soon.
