    there are several branches of mesa, radeon-rewrite being one of them. bridgman has explained them several times (use the search function), but the baseline for end users is: pick whatever is announced on phoronix
    Great! Thanx! I should have known that really. In my defense I am just emerging from a horrible cold and my much brain is still suspended

    I am using radeon on my Thinkpad and have not tried radeonhd yet. I seem to hear less fuzz about the latter one but it is still actively developed no? Are there significant feature differences between the two in other areas such as 2D rendering, suspend/resume, xrandr and powerplay?

    Wohoo!

    One more time (I am still a bit confused here): which of the three radeon, radeon-rewrite and radeonhd drivers is at the frontline and most likely to add semi or proper 3D first?
