AMD "AMD continues to abide by their commitment to provide open-source support for their graphics cards and as proof of that this afternoon they have released their initial hardware acceleration code that supports the ATI Radeon HD 5000 "Evergreen" family of consumer grade graphics processors. While this Evergreen support isn't yet finished and for the time being is targeted towards Linux developers and enthusiasts, you can now play around with your ATI Radeon HD 5000 graphics processor on an open-source driver while having 2D EXA, X-Video, and OpenGL acceleration."

I been using Linux for almost 10 years now and a year for FOSS driver support on hardware is whats to be expected in general. It's good since it means cheap hardware and bad because we're all geeks and want the newest stuff when we go shopping.

Once I accepted this fact all my hardware problems disappeared.
