    VD answered my request to support / answer in the above thread via email:
    "Rest assured we are paying attention and working with Valve, the video driver team and CDP to address as many issues a possible. CDP have asked us to allow them to respond officially, so we will not be responding to threads directly. But do please continue, we are totally committed to addressing the current issues. We will continue to monitor the thread!"

    Hmmm... is that really Witcher2 fix or some eON compatibility fix .

    I guess we can expect some more eON powered games to come .

    Time will tell the story as Catalyst 14.5/14.6 come out. I sure hope I'm right.

    Makes sense.
    I google "coming to linux" with the weekly timestamp weekly and I see more games and programs being ported all the time.

    Something technical outside of the Witcher game universe for this revised driver. AMD could be a bit of kinder and include in this revised fglrx an OLDER working AMDCCCLE panel for us with HDMI connections to scale the compressed image to fullscreen as we could with the amdcccle panel included in Catalyst 14.1 version!
    Is it that difficult AMD??
    I did it very easily alone but breaks down the uninstall script if you change the binary of amdccccle!

    I hate emulated game linux ports by the way and I will never give a cent for them.

    Developers are looking for quick and dirty ways to bring their games over to Linux. It's no different then developers bringing their console games over to Windows. But developers are faced with the choice of either bringing their games to Linux or not bringing them at all. So rather then going through the proper steps A, B, and C, they would rather skip B and go straight to C. This is what Valve did at first with their source games with ToGL but I think in Portal 2 they began to make a proper port.

    If anything, developers don't have proper tools to bring their games over to Linux. We really can't expect them to sit down and rewrite a lot of code, just to get a proper Linux port. If developers see more demand for their games on Linux, then more effort will be done to bring them to linux.

    I agree that it isn't good for the dev's or Linux's reputation. But, both driver devs and game devs are just starting to support a platform that is quite alien to them. We should expect some rough starts as the industry gets a handle on linux. It's not like a console where the software and hardware are fixed; compared to them linux is like the wild west.

    It will probably be a few more years before we can expect game releases on linux to mature. Dev companies need time to develop inhouse linux experience.

    The Quality Of The Witcher 2 Linux Port Is Upsetting Many Gamers

    In short its not native, but using some kind of emulator like Wine (yes I know where the name stands for)
