Name The Next ATI Driver Contest (2007)
From the other threads in the ATI/AMD Linux Forum, some of the unofficial names for the past driver releases has been:
8.38.6: The Least To Report On Driver In Two Years
8.38.6: Still no R600 or AIGLX Support
8.37.6: The no R600 or AIGLX Support Version
8.36.5: The Still no fglrx AIGLX Support Edition
Anyone want to guess what the next driver (fglrx v8.39) version will be called? The Driver That Still Lacks AIGLX and R600 support? 8.39: The Birth of AIGLX Support?
This thread may prove to be more interesting than yesterday's driver release for Fedora 7 users
8.39 "8.35 does it better edition"
8.40 "waiting for 8.41 edition"
8.41 "move along people, nothing to see here edition"
8.42 "maybe next year edition"
8.43 "AIGLX support....NOT! edition"
8.44 "the christmas present you won't like edition"
the unlikely relase that will actually incorporate all the stuff we can only dream of - stability and performance - "too little, too late edition"
I am getting a new laptop.

I should be getting a laptop that uses Intel GPU.
Ah, finally a nice possibility to let out a bit of the frustration... Thank you!
8.39: Not that you might notice any difference
8.40: Actually, we changed a BIG part of the code. Honestly, I swear.
8.41: So who is this Fedora, anyway?
8.42: I told you I don't know this woman!
8.43: Suse is short for Susanne, right?
8.44: Just leave me alone with your chicks!
8.45: If you are so hip and cool and need all the fancy gimmicks, then why don't you just go and buy a Mac?
8.46: Hello, anybody still there?
