Well, I sounded like an ass there, it's just that sometimes "news" like this angers me. For a comment in an unofficial bug tracker. And if indeed AMD is working in fixing their driver, how long would they take?

Okay im usually not a 'world conspirasy' type yelling.. but doubts arise..
Linux market share grows on desktop -> Xorg old drivers purge -> Kernel KMS+some old hw support drop(starting from device list clean) -> Mesa old drivers purge -> Kwin GL1 purge
For god sake is this soo much trouble to keep API version modules build in? Yes bloaty, but more easy to make new api/eye-candy/features while keep compatible with full range of hardware, keep abstract internal api regardless of driver/std on output?. Don't have param or extra param?- whatever just use what you have! XML data parsing rule...
I don't see a reason instead of being paid to shoot in own foot.

Reason: casting flame:)
its a deal between the linux devs and the hardware companys the deal is they get linux drivers and specs if they support obsolescence this means linux users have to buy new hardware everytime its time to buy new hardware to support the obsolescence to make sure the hardware companys get the linux support payed.

Does somebody really think that there will be a fix in less than 3 month?
Of course life isn't for free. But, supposedly, there are legal safeguards against monopoly. That's free market. Software patents and the like are reaching a point where they threaten to abolish free market. And those are precisely the things preventing manufacturers from releasing the source for their products.

http://canaima.softwarelibre.gob.ve/ - Canaima GNU/Linux, the official distro of Hugo Chávez himself.
for me its not any difference to English because i use translators anyway. if you really want to understand something you do it anyway!

But about the tropic: obsolescence isn't a communism idea also the Spanish language is innocence.
