    I literately danced for joy seeing this headline! Now I'll be able to use linux again! (My laptop uses a A4 chip and wouldn't suspend resume with the blob).

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you AMD!

    Fuck yeah!! Bridgman told us before that catalyst PM code is bigger than entire FOSS 3D stack, I will be happy about his comment on that.

    If AMD keeps this up people are going to start thinking AMD cares about open source.

    It is hidden behind a kernel command-line parameter for now, so it might not be enabled by default until Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. But yeah this is insanely awesome and if this actually works I am kicking out Catalyst in a heartbeat.

    With this the open source driver is feature complete. It now supports 2d, 3d, suspend/resume and power management.

    Yay! We now have an alternative to Intel!

    Wow, the actual reason I wasn't using the radeon driver was power management, but now that's fixed! So awesome. Bye bye Catalyst glitches!
    Can't wait to use it.
    Good job radeon team. For all the latest accomplishments.

    We are still missing OpenCL

    But the improvements are amazing. Everything they've promissed, they've delivered, including some stuff they did not promise: UVD, advanced power management, launch-day support...

    Mad props to the AMD Linux team, and to the independent developers.

    We still need opengl 4.2 support, not just 3.1. Although opengl 3.3 has been around the corner for some time now.

    Yes! Once again the amd opensource team saves us from the total disappointment that is fglrx!

    Thanks a lot. Really. This will make my laptop experience so much better.
