    I really hope we will also see UVD enabled for Radeon in 14.04.

    My GPU has problems with audio now with the latest kernels and I really hope AMD will release a Legacy Catalyst for Ubuntu 14.04.

    If not I can't use Linux with this hardware anymore!

    Why not use 12.04 LTS or Mint 13 with backports ?

    He could use ppa's to get all the up to date software he needs. Nothing wrong with using a LTS, that's what its made for. Ubuntu has made it really easy to have both security and up to date software on the same system.

    Did I miss understand these results, or does older games take a plumet in performance while newer ones get very nice improvements according to your results?

    I had them compared to the propiatary driver from 12.04. For mesa 10 vs mesa 9.2, mesa 10 is better in all games I compared.

    UVD itself isn't the problem - with the correct firmware installed it works out of the box on recent kernels.
    It's more important to provide the VDPAU libraries on Ubuntu. Last time I checked, they wanted to wait for Debian to handle this first.

    See
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/mesa/+bug/1002224 and
    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=656719
    for details.
