Although I'm more interested in r300-r500 things (I have an rs690) I'm all happy for those who own r6xx r7xx ... I can still remember when I had to wait for support for my card and struggling with fglcrapx... It wasn't that long wait though (only about half year).
It's a good moment to wish all the devs and team involved with AMD open source strategy/initiative a happy new year May your wishes/dreams be fullfiled in 2009
Hey...if somehow my terrorist complaints on this forum about AMD was helpful to make them work faster, yeah! I'll continue then!!
Nah, I can officially say thanks to AMD and I'll for sure start year 2009 with a smile on my face when I look at my ATI 2600Xt card.
Well, good job then to all developers of these open source drivers and I'll hope one day you can give a lesson to NVIDIA and make them understand no one wants blob drivers, even if somehow they work well.
Good year to all, including you Bridgman and Michael which of course today is really happy I guess we are all happy
Good job AMD, Thats y I chose my radeon over nvidia offerings :up:
Now bring Deneb
Will be buying a new AMD mainboard and graphics card to support you!
edit: bought a HD 4550 to start with!

Is there a place we can easily donate to development of these drivers?
Or do any of the teams involved have some sort of booze fund? Wouldn't want to distract you from your efforts, but wouldn't mind showing my appreciation either
Not to look far away even on this forum there are many people who would take nvidia blob over any other open solution.

Did you forget that any CPU, even an old Pentium 2, can handle that? :P Even on Windows, where the drivers support everything, MPEG2 acceleration is not used by most people because it's totally unnecessary. They prefer software decoding due to the software being able to enhance the picture that way.

Some days ago I bought an r500 card, because I have the choice of drivers. If that choice is soon brought to the newer cards, might get one of those too.
Booze fund, heh
