If HAWX would be opensource, this would be already fixed in matter of minutes.
"cloused source is bad because of braindead programming in applications"
"cloused source was bad because they don't use hardware features"
"cloused source was worst because the driver need to be buggy because of the apps"
"cloused source was more worst than ever because no one wana close any bugs in the apps"
and in the end your message to Nvidia the cloused source driver devs :
"Nvidia is bad because they make cloused source drivers."
you disagree with nvidia and there cloused source drivers
cloused source means lot of pointless work arround app bugs
cloused source apps tend to never get an bugfix after release means cloused source apps are buggy by definition means bad.
work arround the cloused source bug is ugly yes sure ugly!
cloused source is a fail per definition because of the difficulty of maintain thats just burns money and humans...
well yes i'm so hopefully for the opensource world
And ati oss drivers are bugfree. rovide power management and full opengl 4.1 support? Sure, you are the one who wants to to run your Win games with wine, no way for oss drivers for new titles. Nv has in most cases the best drivers on Linux also for Win you get Physx as bonus. But with your lowend ATI card it does not really matter
cloused source means the app did not get an bugfix
cloused source also means to build an driver becomes very expensiv because of pointless app profiles
and yes sure the menue was just wrong and your point of (good/better/best)AA is really good
thats because this means its an cheat because in REAL the 4XAA menue option was just the "Best AA" option but nvidia just cheat FPS to be the winnner in the benchmarks!
Bad oss drivers are bad too - especially when you can not see something when you boot a live system... Or they crash when a splash is activated and so on... Oss drivers are mainly fun for bleeding edge users with no other hobbies than testing oss drivers.
hopyfully debian 6 comes out fast thats because i like to test your new debian 6 based distry
on your physX statement last time i play borderlance an physX game but i can play the game perfect on amd hardware in linux...
means physX isn't sooo magic you only need a fast cpu i play it on an phenomII3,6ghz
means no one need a nvidia card for physX...
and hey i don't care about bluerays and video acceleration
the catalyst 11.1 will be fine for my usage
