    I would like to see hybrid graphic configuration been implemented in open source drivers. Thanks!

    Would love some open-source support for the XvBA acceleration, to go with the full 3D & KMS for R600/R700. Though on the latter I can see (on a daily basis) how hard everyone's working - it's all very-much appreciated.

    Open source ATI drivers:
    - Good power management
    - Thorough DRI2 support
    - Complete and high performance OpenGL support
    - VDPAU :P

    Catalyst for Linux:
    - 2D support as fast as the open drivers
    - Correct XV support
    - VSync on composited desktops
    - Video acceleration worthy of that name (like NVidia's VDPAU)

    So in short: both drivers should work and perform as one would expect from a Windows driver :P

    STD or STR? STR is working here, haven't tried STD.

    - Complete R600/R700 Gallium 3D driver.
    - OpenGL3.x for ATI Radeon
    - Power management for ATI radeon
    - Support R800 (evergreen) ATI

    Seamless Switchable graphics

    I want seamless switchable graphics capabilities in Linux. In the last couple of years, we've seen a proliferation of the switchable graphics model in laptops, and Windows 7 and OSX have picked up the trend and offer full and partial support for it.

    Although the community Linux has made inroads in starting to support this, it's still not as feature complete as the aforementioned commercial OSses.

    I've been compiling information on switchable graphics features in Linux for more than a year now, mostly on this website and bug report:

    I just want my ATI 5850 can run my two monitors with the open source drivers, I dont care the 3D. Is it too much? THe closed source driver is terrible.

    BlackStar: do you know what Nvidia specs actually would be useful?

    I do not care about closed course driver. On open source IMO there is not so much to discuss. I believe community mostly miss following:

    1) Finish power management (avoid corruptions)
    2) Port R7xx HDMI fix from radeonhd to KMS
    3) Use IRQs for HDMI audio
    4) Fix some r600 little bugs
    5) Start working on r600g
    6) Finish r300g
    7) Publish (?) r8xx 2D support
    8) 3D for r8xx

    1) Fix bugs in NV50 3D
    2) Improve 3D on older chipsets
    3) Power management

    1) Accelerate H264 decoding
