I have an AMD powered laptop and I was thinking that my next laptop will be nVidia powered, but after trying the latest radeon OSS driver I started thinking maybe I should stick to AMD. The radeon driver is not as efficient, but at least it works well and is open source and works with DRI_PRIME and will support Wayland as well. We should also see the bright side of AMD, not just focus on their shortcomings.
I would tend to think that Michael has done that in the past, at least sent them a sweet-talking email.

Give up on AMD
Over 5 years ago AMD started releasing docs for their chips, we still dont have an open source driver comparable to their proprietary one, still cant play new release games with open drivers.
Is it time to accept that as a community we have failed, that complex drivers are somethign we just cant do ?
And seriosuly AMD;s commitment to proprietary drivers whilst lettign a few docs go here and there for open source people makes me feel like its been one big long troll by them.
Intel is the only open source friendly graphics chip maker.
I used to think that way, but that was a long time ago. I think Linus is leading

Google got it. So AMD better get it. Or not, but that's their problem. I think
that we're way pass the tipping point for any company to ignore linux. If they
choose to ignore it, and fail, the better. Someone else will gladly fill their shoes.
