I have a Gateway netbook with R690M chipset and Athlon L110 processor. The latest driver for Windows 7 won't let me set scaling options, and I get no scaling at all when an app opens fullscreen. I can open the same software on the same hardware but in Wine (instead of Win7 x64) and I get scaling! Unfortunately, months have gone by but the open source video driver produces graphics corruption on this hardware, so I can't just run Linux (which doesn't have proper multitouch for Synaptics anyway, at least until Synaptics releases their driver suite to end users, assuming that should EVER happen.) And of course, I can't be SURE that I've got the latest driver, because AMD only provides drivers for my hardware to OEMs. AMD produced this hardware and supports it ONLY FOR VISTA, and they abandoned it between Vista and Windows 7.
I can no longer purchase any hardware from AMD because I cannot trust that they will support it.
Good-bye, AMD. I have bought all my CPUs from you and always made an effort to purchase systems with AMD processors when I have been in charge of purchasing decisions. You have shown yourselves to be untrustworthy. I'm done with you.
