    I realize that, that's why if you were going use distrowatch as a measuring stick for articles then openSUSE should have more articles then Fedora.

    On topic, I just wrote officially that the drivers will be dropped. Thanks for the support on this matter, (Arch) / Linux community.

    who cares? Archlinux is broken by design - a good example of how not to do a distribution.

    Arch is an ideal distribution for someone who doesn't want to spend all day compiling apps and who wants rolling distro.

    I think in the end this will only hurt Arch, assuming they have a big ATI user base to begin with. Plus, I'm sure someone in the community will eventually step up to the challenge.

    wrong. With its broken versioning and downgrading it is the worst possible distribution for anybody who wants rolling updates.

    Which is better if I don't want to compile packages?

    @energyman, you just want to take the time to tell us your achievement frustrations?

    @Melcar, 10% of our users use ati open source driver. 9% use catalyst, so no not many users use catalyst, not even ati at all, nvidia is used by 43% of the users.
