Comment: What about also focusing on features ? (Score 2) 136

I am very glad that AMD is improving the performance of their driver on Linux but I wish they would focus more on adding features that have been present on Windows for years. For instance, support for hybrid AMD/Intel graphics really sucks on linux laptops. You have to manually select the graphics card you want to use and restart your computer each time you want to switch between desktop use and gaming. On windows you can select which card to use for each application. Overheating and battery usage is also worse on linux than on windows. Finally, I wish suspend/wake would work as flawlessly on linux with the fglrx driver as it does on windows.

Even though the 64-bit linux version was an alpha release, it worked rather well and was definitely a serious alternative to using the 32-but version along with nspluginwrapper. I have been using it for some time without any major problem. Fullscreen video playing still sucks, but huh, we're talking about flash right ?
