    Reminds me of a Maple Leafs fan saying "next year"

    Those have been there for years, they are not a bug "they are a feature".

    yes 10.11 is a lame duck but 10.12 brings new stuff.
    More bug reports and more does-not-run benchmarks without a doubt

    yes yes i know only the future can save us
    I suppose, if you believe in reincarnation.

    I think you are dreaming. Nobody, or nobody capable enough, is working on this, how could this happen then? Same bugs ever again. Let's see in 3 months, I don't want to waste any more time on that, this is depressively bad. I wil probably just remove the files. I don't like writing crap to workaround bugs nobody cares enough to fix. And I don't like keeping crap, this is terribly ashaming... and useless but growing mental disorders. I'd probably need to practise some martial art to expunge anger and hatred.

    No unminimize delay
    Blur works (except Mipmap)
    Video vsync still doesn't work

    I give it about 5 more years and it will be fine.

    That's what they were saying 5 years ago.

    HAHA. So true. I bought a Radeon 4870 after phoronix blabbed about great open source drivers. I sold it 2 months later, because both open/closed drivers suck.
    I'm happy with my nvidia now. Even though the drivers are closed source, they WORK. Imagine that! No screen tearing, crashes, and hardware acceleration.

    Also of note, I swear that 90% of the times phoronix posts about a new Radeon drive the headline is 'nothing interesting'
    Seriously ATI, excuse me, I meant AMD, if you want my business stop talking about roadmaps, and future improvements, and just release something that competes with nvidia TODAY
