That's maybe because:

And about this topic; I think everybody has already thanked the driver devs who read this (and if not massive thanks for your effort) and thus there is little left to talk about, except one single douchebag, so allow us to be entertained.

While the Gallium3D driver may not be as fast as the proprietary driver, it is much better behaved in my opinion, particularly with video. I used to have really bad tearing and other artifacts and have none now with R600g.
I've seen more good things happen with Linux graphics drivers over the last year than the ten preceding years I've used Linux. Hopefully VDPAU will be implemented in the not too distant future.

you are just wrong microsoft won on the fat patent stuff in germany on the highest cord.

means you can not patent an algorithm but you can patent stuff like FAT32,S3tc and so one.
be sure you will lose in germany/europe if you think you can use s3tc free like the opensource means to be free.
the only stuff thats helps you is that in europa/germany patentlaw is only for companys and not privat users.
means you can use s3tc if you a privat user.

I didn't laugh, and I have an excellent sense of humour (of course). And it's not the first time somebody complains about something you wrote, by the way.

How to test this
I tried to test this on my own Hardware.
I compiled 2.6.38-rc1 and got rid of fglrx. When I modprobe radeon I get a black screen and a few seconds later machine freezes. Now magic keys work, just hardware reset.
Maybe this is beacuase of my card. I am using an hd6870.
Is there any where else described in detail how to try this out ?
Thanks and best regards

As far as I know your card should be supported.
