Making fun out of someone on a public news site because he inofficially states that the radeonhd driver is an alternative is not a nice thing to do.
I'm the only person that's mentioned it so far, and I've hardly been making fun. After all, if Arch chose to force radeonhd above radeon, they wouldn't be the first; Ubuntu does that as well. I'm just saying that I find it odd.
