    I would greatly appreciate it if they were doing something for the current GPUs.

    So far all we've only heard hollow promises, for years.

    I'm not saying you're not doing anything, but if it never reaches the users, it does not matter.

    ... that seems odd, since the first time I talked about starting to work on it was just over a year ago and I said it wouldn't be quick and that we didn't know at the time what (if anything) we would end up being able to release. What do you think we "promised" ?

    I guess, although to the best of my knowledge shooting messengers has *never* accomplished anything in the entire history of mankind and after the first couple of times it doesn't even make you feel any better

    Kicking them into pits of death however, shows that you and your 300 personal bodyguards are badasses...

    The thing is AMD is losing customers. I for one will never buy an AMD GPU again. Enough is enough, you (AMD) are playing with us. You need to learn something from Intel and Nvidia, at least they are coherent with their policy. The former makes ONLY an opensource driver, while the latter makes ONLY one closed source driver. Your situation is somewhat schizophrenic, you give us a buggy binary driver or an incomplete open source one.

    P.D: Note this has nothing to do with you personally bridgman, because I know you are doing the best you can.
