    2011 catalyst news:tearfree,weight loss,h264Flash acceleration

    yes 2011 is funny time we got a light weight cytalyst because they put out the r300-r500 part and they put the xorg bin versions together.

    and we got tear-free desktop and surprise surprise finally we got h264 codex gpu acceleration in flash.

    and maybe we got an Adobe Creative Suite Linux version

So, seems open source drivers have got strong competition.
    uuuu thats why i'm useing the radeon OS driver on kubuntu 11.04?

    strong competition means not that it runs with the lastest and greatest opensource software.

    If they can make it bug free I wouldn't be worried if it was 800megs.

    Maybe they've dropped support for the 2000 series. fglrx ain't working for me anyway and it has been that way for almost a year now.

    disk space may be cheap, but download limits and speed still ruin some people's day.

    How many people does it take to bring out monthly Catalyst drivers?

    I don't have exact numbers but it is in the multiple hundreds. The one bit of trivia I do know is that at AMD we had roughly the same number of hardware engineers as we did software engineers. So as many people that it takes to design and build a GPU - you need that many more people to architect, write, and test the drivers
    That depends, or to put it more simple... How many ATi software devs, are needed to screw a light bulb?
