Sorry ? As of now, ATI has no open source driver. I will believe it when I see it

Not that I care, though. I'm not going to spend half a grand on a card just to use it up to 70% (or 50, or 80, or even 95) of its potential just to be able to say "hey, but I'm using an open source driver". I use my cards for work, and that means that I want the maximum possible performance from them, if this means that I have to use a closed source driver then be it.
