Looks like Christmas came a little late this year... Anyway, seeing you guys kept your promises despite all the stupid DRM hardship finally made me stop regretting the day I decided to support you for your FOSS iniciative.
Now I believe I'm not only speaking for myself when I promise that I'm gonna reward you with buying your stuff and recommending it to every GNU/Linux user I know as long as you keep supporting us this way. Keep up the excellent work, AMD!
And John, please relay our sincere thanks to everyone responsible for this wonderful late-Christmas present
P.S.: I found out fglrx wasn't the only thing responsible for all my trouble - one of the memory modules was corrupting data on several addresses which seems to be where most of the deadlocks came from. I'm just about to toss the whole RAM kit back the store for warranty claim.
