    better than NVIDIA

    to me, this driver works perfectly, far better than any nvidia driver I used on other machines. The Nvidia driver needs compiz to be switched off for playing games (or the peformance is A LOT slower), has no localization for nvidia-settings, which also looks outdated, and video-tearing is still an issue. Also, no open-source alternative.

    i have been using alt+ctrl+D (show desktop) that has been working good so far
    some games ofc like Trine grab the mouse so u have to use ctrl+g first to ungrab it.

    Compositing: Yes and no.

    With HoN and Savage2, I could alt-tab regardless of the state of compositing.
    With Oilrush, Trine and Sauerbraten, alt-tab didn't work regardless of the state of compositing.
    The issue is that many games grab the keyboard indiscriminately, stealing alt-tab messages from the window manager. Fglrx had an additional "feature" on top of that where it would automatically unredirect fullscreen-sized windows, which appears to be fixed now.

    I run fglrx with ubtuntu 11.04 and 11.10 on a e350 (lenovo s205) and had no problem with suspend with the 11.4 - 11.8 fglrx driver.
    i did have promblems with suspend on this laptop but that was an efi issue passing noefi with boot args fixed it for me.

    not sure if it worked with the open driver and efi

    sticking with 11.6 until the OpenCL bug is fixed.

    to the folks bitching about suspend/resume: What suspend software are you using ? tuxonice or swsusp2 (or how is it called) ? I never had any luck with tuxonice and fglrx but swsusp2 worked without problems.

    i do not have any problem with the catalyst 11.8.
    I can't. 'don have one.

    I'm referring to a few threads on here and some of the owners are saying what they are having problems with (video being one).

    What works, specifically?
