        Oh yes! I remember struggling with fglrx 20 years ago to get Unreal Tournament working, it was a pain. Not only installation, but also messing with config parameters, modelines and what not. Today with the open source driver I can just install any AAA game and most of the time it will just work --> Thanks for all that progress and the part that you have played in it. 20 years ago I would not have believed where Linux graphics are today

        Happy retirement!

          Happy retirement Mr Bridgman. It was after a conversation with you here on phoronix that I started to run AMD on my computers. Thank you.

            I am pretty sure everyone knew who I was talking about and that I don't care about the exact spelling any more than Qaridium cared about making comprehensible posts. And no, deleted posts don't count.

              LOL! Not always trolling. Sometimes, trying to pitch bridgman on a "brilliant" idea that he should totally pass on to AMD's senior management or the CPU product managers (as if he even knows who those people are).

              ‚ÄčIt'd be generous of him to pop in and say a few nice words to the community. Wouldn't cost him much, but maybe he just wants his legacy of tens of thousands of (mostly) patient posts to speak for itself.

              More likely than not, he's off on a vacation somewhere, celebrating his newfound freedom. Can't blame him for not wanting to ruin it by logging into Phoronix, expecting to see the typical dozen or so posts by angry AMD users @-ing him with their complaints or support requests. I'd imagine that's normally what he sees, when he logs in.

                    if we listen to Avis/Birdie/Sophisticles they do not even try to have a brilliant idea and of course they do not improve anything for them microsoft windows is best and open-source people can not have any brilliant idea what so ever.

                    thats the problem of the forum in general people do not even try to be brilliant some just want to be destructive here.

                      I may be a bit late bridgman, but it's thanks to people like you that I am able to enjoy excellent quality FOSS driver support on my all-AMD system. (With a little of bit of room for improvement in ROCm.) Thank you so much and have a nice retirement!
