    Kudos to Peter for taking this bull by the horns. It is too bad he didn't jump at it a couple of months earlier, or we might have seen 1.7 in the October refresh of Ubuntu. Oh well.

    With a reduced feature set. Seriously better this way. It's plenty more tiresome they keep dropping features out of releases than that they postpone releases imo.

    Most likely not. I am guessing. But, you won't know for sure until someone tries it. Why not you?

    Not working with fglrx 9.5 but that was to be expected with a binary blob.
