And if you run Radeon chipsets which worked with FC6 and FC9, should you expect
that the developers would spend time on gamer features like 3D and compiz while
long time users run in text mode or VESA mode at best? Not everyone can throw
away what was a pretty decent laptop when it gets to be three years old.
Lately it feels as if developers are not adding features but breaking or
removing support as well, as though there were some limit on the number of
chipsets which can work.
