    I really hope that the new OpenGL driver will make things better in fglrx.

    We would know more if the AMD-future article from Michael would come someday... just like AIGLX support ^^

    You can hope... But in the short-term, I doubt it will. Long-term, it might be a different story, but since they've still not really got the R600 chips out of engineering eval yet...

    btw, did you see this one? i hope they're not all-talk. it might suggest some changes in driver quality perhaps.

    To me, I would consider this as a welcoming news. If AMD can really deliver what was stated, I guess there is still hope for ATI in Linux.

    Great! Kernel 2.6.21 and Xorg 7.3 is the most important for now, than AIGLX + Performance.

    Kernel 2.6.21 should be working with the latest public driver, is it not for you? For the other, just be sure to stick around the forums

    Kernel 2.6.21: I heard about some problems. I can't confirm these for myself.
    Xorg 1.3: I know that Kano from KANOTIX has a workaround for this. If you did not mean that, it was a hidden message that 8.37 supports it. Thanks.

    Most distributions who have the new Kernel also have Xorg 1.3. I am currently waiting for Sidux 2007-02 based on Debian/sid, the first preview of it comes this weekend. It has Kernel 2.6.21 and Xorg 1.3, too.

    michael is not getting his hopes up for anything more than kernel + x.org support.

    that's too bad :/

    do we also have to take it as a hidden message?
