    With the OpenBenchmarking.org embeddable graphs its a matter of being a click away from it.

    Perhaps Michael can update the PTS suite to report the settings used on the various tests.

Was tessalation enabled when used with a compatible driver (for the record I read kano's assessment, just saying.. it should be in the review).

    Benchmarks without the proper context loose a lot (if not all) of their meaning.
    You can find out all of the settings by running the phoronix-test-suite yourself or looking at its package settings. Simple as that, totally reproducible.

(On the Windows side, it's even worse and I can't decode both H264/VC-1 encoded videos without using about 50% of my CPU (which corresponds to 100% usage in a single-threaded application)).

    By another side, currently we've some 'patched' support for newer kernel releases (2.6.36/2.6.37), latest stable Xorg releases are working with recent Catalyst versions and it even supports my HD4650 AGP card out-of-box without applying the "AGP patch", like it happens on Windows.

    Cheers
    Seems like I perhaps could go back to Catalyst every now and then, whenever I play games =)
    Perhaps Minecraft fares better with Catalyst than video-ati-drivers.

    Probably. I made a clear installation and maybe that's why I avoided problems.
    BTW even hibernation and suspend works like a charm. For example my laptop has uptime 1.5 day now only because I had to power it off 2 days ago since I didn't have along my charger.
