We may not end up in a doomsday scenario, but the overhead of SOPA builds a strong framework ripe for abuse. I feel it is a better idea to draw the line now and say no regulation before a monster like SOPA is passed and we have to see our rights whittled away case after case. Leave the Internet open and place the burden on the content producers to build a FAIR framework for anti-piracy if they want one. The current model plus SOPA will place huge financial burden on people even in "fair use" cases. It is an unfair battle for all but the content owners. This is a greedy, money-making model built by the companies with money to twist the Internet to their ends. Say no with your dollars and to your congressmen before we lose control of our Internet freedoms.

I run Debian and Scientific Linux, and have used the Driver installer from AMD's page to configure the proprietary driver on both with no problems. My home desktop has an ATI 5770 running triple headed on Debian Squeeze and has been flawless and stable for over a year. The drivers are fine, IMHO.

And they recently took the world's fastest processor record for Guinness, I believe. They used liquid helium cooling at -220 C... The actual chip and package are made to withstand high clock speeds and tortuous conditions. They are gonna tune these and make them faster. They need their R & D team to make better sense of their instruction set implementation. That's where Intel is killing them in Ops/second... I still have hopes for AMD, 'cuz competition is good for us, but I use Intel right now...

Entropy isn't what it used to be.
