    While I personally like AMD products just fine and use them at home, I would have to say that getting one of their GPUs specifically for linux has never been a good idea, unless all you care about is 2D performance. The open source drivers aren't too far behind but so far both open and closed source drivers are sub-par and always have been for linux. In another year or two, I'm sure going for AMD will be a perfectly fine choice for linux users.

    @RussianNeuroMancer: Catalyst is a closed source product made for a hardware product of the same company. It is *NOT* the job of the users to begg at hardly visited amd developer forums to fix the endless list of bugs.

    He doesn't need to provide bug reports. Its well established that the Catalyst drivers are quite buggy.

    It's just the EGL support that is 32bit for now, not the whole driver. Plus, the EGL support doesn't sound overly useful since you can't run Wayland on it yet.

    I'll be trying out the (64bit) driver (on linux-rt) later. Hopefully, it doesn't have any regressions, 325.15 has been pretty good since it's release (well, after i figured out how to patch it for -rt kernels, since the 3.0-rt patch was deprecated / partially integrated).
