    Ack, save your sanity and leave this thread! It's pretty obvious that it's just troll bait by now.

    yes.. but still not in system repo, need to fiddle with it.

    manual install always fck something up in some cases. and from repo they are well integrated with system.

    look dud, go to amd website, download drivers 13.1 and just install them, fix many problems, with SRGB stuff and segfaults, and stop bitching, ok?

    Rofl you win

    Anyway, Steam is the redeemer for GNU/Linux.

    What was the problem for long? "I can't do gaming in linux". Now that is less of a problem. All pieces on the puzzle are slowly integrating into one Big Picture.

    The situation:

    + video drivers are becoming better
    + gaming is possible

    Please don't talk without knowing. And yes, I hate DRM and I'm pro FOSS.
    why do you want pirate games if you are not a gamer```? ? ?? ``? ` ?``? ` ``??` ? ??`???``???

    I can not get the point of your writing.... is there any evil force to force you into a DRM trap for stuff you do not even want ?

    are you in danger? do you need help?

    *yawn*
    Don't begin to yawn when I found this interesting

    In the Good Old Days (tm) I went to a game shop and if I was interested of some game I thought I could buy, if good enough, I asked can I try it. I always could.

    I am thinking that Steam could do better than it is doing now. Steam is excellent platform for better customer service.

    Steam could give customers a chance to try a game for one hour for free. With DRM that would be trivial to implement. Steam would keep a database of games the customer has tried for one hour so that a customer could not abuse his rights. Steam would give the chance to try a game only to respected customers (to avoid account creation spamming). That is how things work in real life too.

    Steam would get better data for marketing with the new "customer's rights" feature, and "respected customers" would get "benefits"
