    They deserve it. They shouldn't have bought the crap in the first place.

      i upgrade to 10.10 and use the opensource driver and then i test the 10-7 catalyst what is wrong by testing a driver???

      On the other hand, if you have HD 3000 or HD 4000, you can escape the torture and use OSS driver, unless you happened to love torturing yourself...
      yes very dramatic, but the R800 3D mesa driver is near by release... means this 'true' is outdated very soon.

        Believe it or not, for 3D operations, ATI cards still blow Nvidia out of the water. Want OGL 4 on a $30 card? Nope, you sure aren't buying one from Nvidia. Heck, look at the Win 7 vs Linux benchmarks on Phoronix. The Catalyst on consistently did better than the Nvidia driver.

          OGL 4 on a 30$ card doesn't make sense. It's the same hoax as DX 11 on a 30$ card where games run at 5FPS.

            That's up to the game devs, not the standard, and not the video card manufacturer. So it's no hoax.

              Exactly. Turn down the tesselation to non absolutely rediculous levels and a $30 card will do just fine.

                Good luck turning it down. And good luck playing today's DX11 games on your $30 card. Sure, it says "DX11" on its stats. But it's just a hoax. It can't run the games at acceptable frame rates.

                  And these are just the "simple" settings. I'm sure it is in violation of at least a dozen GNOME HIG Guidelines. And what's up with all these cones
                  It violates Gnome "standards"? Oh goodie. Too bad some people aren't using that crap and went for KDE instead, huh?

                      Haha... Mister Anderson, what good a phone call is, if you are unable to speak?

                      Be it a $30 or $3000 ATI card, it cannot even run 3D on linux that's the 101 problem they have to solve. Comparing that with a low end nvidia card, nvidia still wins
