    No, in English it really doesn't make enough sense the way it's written. It just reads really weirdly.
    OK I missed a typo then.

      Running amdpgu drive on Gnome Wayland stable on daily basis debunk the "practically unusable" claim. Nouveau development is held hostage by nVidia attitude.

        Is Wayland more stable that X? I'm running it on X and it glitches out all the time. For example I have to restart Firefox several times a day because the graphics start glitching all over the screen. My nVidia machines running the nVidia driver never have anything like that.

        Same for Windows using the proprietary AMD stuff. So buggy, glitchy, crashy, just terrible.

        I wouldn't even be running AMD but I have a whole bunch of AMD cards left over from the old mining days.

          from the blokes that decided to support apple's developement of yet another graphic api ( becuase they dont want vulkan to be used on the web ) and to spread the fallacies that justify it , now comes this

            linner - Intel GPU drivers are also pretty awesome, and just work.

              What an idiot, supporting the enemy. Keep that attitude and eventually they'll rekt you too.

                ...except that some people had some issues with indeterminate hardware and indeterminate versions of mesa.
                Well, people should learn to use stable kernels and mesas But not even first releases of these stables

                On Debian Buster and AMDGPU i am using 4.19.13 kernel and Mesa 18.2.8, LLVM 7.0.1 of course... and none probs there

                But even if these ultra stables are broken for somebody then i guess Google have right here

                edit: Remember that Google uses Debian testing so Buster as base for their internal gLinux distro and they do care about longterm 4.19 kernel also, so if that recent ultra stable combo is still broken here for somebody (and even if by switching to Mesa 18.3.1 is still borked and doesn't fix problems) they get opinion and go to blacklisting as final measure... no one care there if git main non-versions of drivers are broken or working somewhere

                Of course such an non average Joe user, could do random gitorous and variabiles... but who cares about that

                  Zhenyao Mo is a dumbass (the Google engineer who blacklisted nouveau).

                  How on earth do these people get PhDs?

                  This moron should be fired from Google and not be allowed to touch any important project again.

                    I also have been using an AMD with no issues. I wonder what issues the original poster had?
                    edit I also have Nvidia in a Windows System, I had tried using Nvidia on Linux a while back but too many headaches

                      sandy8925 Intel drivers are crap.
                      they crash all the time and performance is just non existent.
                      At least performance might improve when Intel switches to Mesa... But still the core render stuff is crap
