Awesome! Pretty much what Mr. B already told us here a thousand times. Still, I expect a bunch of flames over this. Some people just don't want to cut AMD some slack.
Started using Linux way back in 2004 with a 9800pro, and aside from newbie mistakes and pitfalls, I did manage to fully use my cards with fglrx incredibly well; sure, they lacked some features that were new and exciting back then, but for the most part you had alternatives or ways of going around the limitations. Now that fglrx has caught up in terms of performance (and to a lesser extent features), plus all the work being done in the open source side, I really can't ask for more. Thumbs up to AMD, seriously.
