    I have read reports that the Radeon Pro driver on Linux leaves something to be desired. Anyone here have any experience running a Radeon Pro WX4100 or WX3100 with the current driver that can speak to stability/compatibility?

      I'll offer one caution / PSA - this driver is based on the 20.45 release, which does *not* include support for the 5.8 kernel.

      Canonical has been pushing HWE kernel upgrades out even to 20.04.1 users, so even if you are running 20.04.1 there is a risk that the DKMS kernel portion will not install.

      If you are running 20.04.2 then recommend that you *not* try to install this release, and if you are running 20.04.1 then please check the kernel version before installing.

        With respect, I don't understand your post at all. The issue I'm talking about is in the (entirely open source) kernel driver.

              If you think about it, it's not surprising these forums get a few like him. Ask yourself this: if you're a paranoid conspiracy theory nut, which OS would you run?

              The best thing to do is flag such posts, since arguing with him just gives him a platform to spread yet more ridiculous disinformation.

                Yes, but as the article mentions the GUI is Windows-only.
