    Lol too late, I nearly bought a pair of HD 5850 yesterday, but judging that I won't even get '''2D''' accelerated desktop in Linux, I gave up the chance and went to SLI GTX 460 instead. Couldn't be happier

    and i do not have the money for 1 single 5570 ;-)

    "Couldn't be happier"

    be sure 'happy' and cloused source hardware (for an opensource os) isn't a good friend ;-)

    "Happy" is when it WORKS, not when it's open source.

    Yes, sure. I am not happy with the open drivers. They still suck. I'm not happy.

    "About time."

    Ok, nice. But who told you that? Some kind of
    "inner voice"? Your uncle who works at amd?
    "Some guy in irc"?

    Last questions to my new favorite forum oracle:
    Will i be able to run glxgears in 6 month on
    my (atm) 4 month old HD5850 with the FOSS driver?
    (Right now, i'm not even having flicker-free xv
    acceleration and i'm still stuck with shadowfb.
    And really, this sucks hard.)

    PS: I didn't want to talk about fglrx. This
    even sucks more. No other "driver" was able to freeze
    my pc faster than this piece of binary code.

    Boris64 talked about what he experienced and he actually HAS an HD5850 card.

    Qaridarium: you happy about what? Do you have an HD5000 card at all?

    Open source intelligence,intelligence collection management,Human Engineering/Social engineering (security), Vision and Imagination.

    if you really read all of the phoronix posts for example 'Bridgman's' posts so you can get an 'open source intelligence'

    6 month's you are not strong in reading right ;-)

    i think the release is in less than 30days

    yes this sucks but it was your choice to not get a hd4xxx i have a hd4xxx and the opensource driver works...
