    I can't personally prove the earth is round or that the sun will rise tomorrow either, but i feel pretty safe making that speculation.

    The facts are that Marek isn't getting 50K a year in donations, and even if he was that's way, way below his market value.

    Also, 200 graphic cards are sold per day in one computer shop in your average metropolis. These doubts are laughable.

    I don't think he even have 20, but what do I know...
    Money is not made on doubts or opinions. I have laid realistic path, if I were Marek, I would follow it. There is nothing wrong with getting paid for solid professional work and this is how GPU developers earn their money. BUT, the difference is that freelance do not have to obey shitty corporate politics. Like writing windows driver, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare, because the driver is more polished, because more engineers work on it, because corporate policy tells so, because it has higher marketshare,..

    I think this recursion depth is enough for everyone to get the logic.

    No, job for the open source AMD Radeon driver.
    I don't think that is his job, its more like a hobby.
    I don't think the donations from the Linux community is enough to sustain his driver development as a job.

    He already has job. He just picks the bugs and shortcomings of radeon driver, fix them and call the price here and for example on ubuntu forums.
    Also, he already stated he apparently does not need any card...
