I would have liked to be that enthusiast but this won't happen.

Ubuntu should use the 2.6.31 when release, so, there will be no 3D support for r6xx/r7xx cards on Ubuntu 9.10.
That being said, I would like to tell that advanced users should use rolling distro so as more users could contribute to bug reporting.
definitly going to buy a notebook with an amd gpu!
But why you do not buy complete AMD notebook. CPU,GPU and chipset :)

The article brought up R800, so I'm wondering if R800 will be clumped together with R600/RV700 and use the same set of drivers.
It won't be like the transition from R500 to R600 right?
Also, as a KDE user, since it works with Compiz, does it work with Kwin? :D
dang, just moved back to fglrx for 3d goodness...
(card: radeon 3200hd)
Still I can hope that this will lead to out of the box compiz on opensuse 11.2
(I know it's dreaming for a bit too much... but what's the harm in hoping :)
Does anyone know the git url for this branch?
I knew buying a 780G would pay off :D
Buying ATI Chipset + GPU as laptop is the worst case you can do. Look:
It is nice that you see a pic and xv is working and hopefully soon even compiz, but i consider it a bad deal when the binary driver does not run on pure AMD/ATI hardware.
