Because we are the users and we have paid for their cards! We do have
the right to demand a working driver (which actually is ridiculous since
you can't operate your card without a driver). I don't see any reason why
linux users should be second class users.
Our money is of the same worth as anyone elses.

At least AMD/ATI is releasing some documentation so we can just wait
until the xf86-video-ati/radeonhd become stable and suit most desktop
users needs and then abandon AMDs catalyst.
