3D News, GL, DirectX "Last October we had compared the performance of the open-source R300 display driver against the closed-source fglrx driver for ATI Radeon graphics cards. In that comparison a Mobility Radeon X300 was used with X.Org 7.1, but we have decided to take another look at this driver comparison under X.Org 7.2. In this last comparison, the fglrx binary blob had greatly outperformed the open-source driver. While the fglrx driver remains faster, has the performance delta between these two drivers decreased?"

"I'm not a part of your "we." I use Linux because of its technical merits, many of which are directly related to the fact that it's free software."

If you use Linux you are part of "WE" does not matter why you use it, you use it!

Do the math any one demand equals more money so if the people who are demanding the product wants it and is willing to talk about it then they will get their way.

What I really dislike are all the people who started out using MS and still make allot of money because of MS talk about the company like it is the worse thing that ever happened. Can they do better yes and they should.

I love open source for many of the same reasons many of you do my question was not about open source in general but about open source drivers.

For all the people who thing closed source software will go way THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
