No, but this is the trade off people make when buying devices like the iphone/ipod. Clearly people value having the fashionable/trendy/"Just Works*" that Apple provide over being able to fix something that is broken. Until that trade off tilts harder against the consumer it will continue to be made.

I see lots of articles about how AMD plans to do this, that, and the other using open source components. What I want to know, is can I run 3D games using the in-tree kernel module with the proprietary user modules yet? This was promised a while back and I haven't seen any more about it. I want to support the effort, but I am not buying another AMD card until I see it actually work.

I don't want more of these games where launch day features include broken quests, random crashes, missing plot points, and other things that would have been caught if QA wasn't cut the make the launch schedule. I am willing to see fewer of these games made if that is the price of me waiting 18 months to buy them.
