    Understaffed less now. Nice AMD! Slowly but surely Linux keeps on improving and I've never regretted buying AMD products. This is a rare case of products improving over time, instead of declining in worth.

    Now that HTMLv5 is comming, Java is open sourced and videographics are finally starting to run respectably compared to a few years ago, the only thing remaining on my wishlist is Coreboot. That stinking BIOS needs to die, yesterday!

    Yes I do, but currently I'm mostly reading docs and trying to cleanup the previous video decoding work.
