>You've polled most users? :-)

Nope, but as I have contacts to some devs of Debian and FreeBSD and I'm following different mailinglists I certainly can see a significant part of the whole picture. Then there is my very own experience as ATI user since Mach 64 and Win3.11 and last not least lots of articles from people in media. But look for yourself in ArchLinux forum, Gentoo forum, Slackware users on Linuxquestions, etc. pp. ;-)

>Also those folks that have problems with the new ATI driver in FreeBSD should rebuild xf86-video-ati now that the patch that was causing lockups on r300/r400/r500 GPUs has been removed

There are similar problems in Debian testing (freezes, etc.), so this isn't all FreeBSD specific. And especially this drivers renders many problems by chance on different hardware. It's hard to draw conclusions from this alpha/beta-quality driver.
use UNIX or die :-)
