Anything is possible. But let's do quick mental check here. What was the quality of AMD/ATI closed source drivers for Linux before it declared support for open source efforts ?Quote:
If there was no open source drivers maybe AMD wouldn't have let go of the proprietary driver for my card.
I remember them being totally unuseable, but who knows, maybe your experiences were different.
Interestingly, similar examples were all across the board. No one cared nor be pressured to offer decent data and drivers. If what they put on the table worked for you, fine. If not, you were offered the f*** off option.
You said that on the configuration you decided to use, closed source drivers for your graphic card do not work at all, and open source ones work "badly". Ergo, open source on that example performs better.Quote:
What do you mean that open source perform better? They are much worse than the proprietary blob. I could play nexuiz very well on 12.04 but on 12.10 I get around 20 fps.
