    I stick by my pet name for this one- I didn't think they could get it straightened out enough to have even a rough-cut available by now. Trust me on that one.

    I stand by my notebook purchase up to this point- and will remain skeptical for a long while at least; they disappointed us for so long as it was. Their silicon had the potential for this all along. They failed at that task and let most of us down as a result for the longest time. I had to buy a notebook with an NVidia GPU just to be able to do my 3D contract development work. They now have my attention; how long they have it, remains to be seen.

    Well now that we know 8.41 is a good driver.. I guess we can come up with some nice names for it.

    8.41: Everything you could want, except no AIGLX, batteries included.

    8.41: ATI Catalysts: Go fast edition

    8.41: The rival to the Windows driver has come.

    8.41: A beginning of good things from ATI/AMD.

    8.42: Back to 8.40 and under performance, trust us, its more stable! (Sorry I had to throw that in haha)
