    Great work from the AMD guys. Wasn't this kinda the last doc even semi-required after which the ball completely moved to the opensource community? As in, if the drivers still will take a long time, we only have ourselves to blame.

    Excited as well, but I still hope fglrx dies as soon as the open drivers catch up and it's not needed anymore. That circumvents them needing to open source it if there are issues with that, and then they can focus their efforts on a much more open future for the GNU/Linux platform.

    Seeing the CCC open sourced would be neat too, but again, if they don't open source it I hope they help make an open source GUI to tweak their (and other) gfx cards or simply help contribute and enhance the graphics configuration GUIs and command line programs which already exist which would probably be more ideal. Perhaps enhance xrandr or something else to do more complicated tweaks to graphics performance (like mipmaps, various frequencies, etc etc).

    Nice going AMD!

    Lets hope this helps in finally letting die that bad reputation Ati has for their drivers. The opensource drivers provide choice for the end user to pick the best driver available. It also means that these graphics cards will be supported for a long long time (because the community has the ways to do this). And it means that Ati is the way to go for the opensource guru that hates the binary blobs, which are the only things that other manufacturer provides .

    Perhaps some day AMD/Ati will be the choice for Linux because good opensource drivers are available (my personal hopes are that the catalyst drivers will get a bit better as well, so they can really get on par with nvidias drivers).

    Anyway: my next graphics card (after an HD4870, an HD3450 and an integrated HD3200) will certainly be an AMD/Ati one again.

    That makes me hope that my new onboard chips will be working nicely soon. And I hope that these powersaving features will also be implemented finally.
