No Stable RadeonHD 2D Driver This Year
Phoronix: No Stable RadeonHD 2D Driver This Year
The key developers at Novell that are behind the open-source RadeonHD driver for the ATI R500/600 graphics processors have been doing a great job (as you can find out by reading a number of our RadeonHD articles). Previously we reported that the Novell developers had hoped to complete the 2D RadeonHD work by the end of the year; however, that will no longer be the case.
no stable 2D, unless AMD releases more 2D specs soon!
AMD still holds up specs this late, while they suggested 2D by this year.
Just don't get feed up by AMD propaganda. They do not really care about customers. They couldn't get fglrx for years, therefore, no miracle for open source either.
Everything from AMD is propaganda. There benchmarkings, like, "super fast barcelona", "open source video".
Remember, RMS still holds the sign, "Don't buy from ATI, enemy of your freedom", now we can safely s/TI/MD/.
