Seeing is believing. You see it working fine, so you believe it. I see flickering, tearing, a Unity 3D desktop that regularly explodes into shards, and occasional hard lockups, so I believe that. Installing the ATI binary driver solves my problem.

"pretty damn good" doesn't mean "free of bugs" and compared to the binary ATi driver it works significantly better (at least for me), supports all the latest fancy stuff (KMS etc.) and generally just does its job without needing special attention – pretty much what I'd expect from a driver. That there are issues is unfortunate but happens to any piece of software (I still occasionally get a corrupted mouse pointer).

The "works for me, you must be doing something wrong" attitude prevalent in open source gets tiring pretty fast, by the way.

Which I said where exactly? Loving the attitude, btw.
