    8.53 - "we use windows edition"

    8.39 - "A update only noticeable through a microscope"

    8.40 - "ATI/AMD Linux Catalyst Drivers: Crash a-lot Edition"

    8.41 - "Bits of AIGLX code found, but no implementation Edition"

    8.42 - "ATI/AMD Linux Catastrophe Drivers: The name says it all."

    8.43 - "I smell AIGLX, oh wait, nevermind."

    8.44 - "The still no performance improvement edition."

    8.45 - "The last release, and sadly, the most pointless."

    Thats my prediction. Of course it could go in any order, not just the order I specified above. Maybe with the exception of the last release one, but I had to end the list haha.

    Also I think that if AMD is going to put money into a linux division, they should do it right. Either that, or just release the specs and don't have one at all if they're not going to do anything.

    I was being nice My original title for that one involved a buyout of some sort, but then I realize they'd already been bought out, so I just re-routed it :3

    8.39: What you expected

    Same maintenance/nothing-new-for-the-end-user type of driver. Seriously now, would you expect anything else?!
