Thanks so much to all of you for your excellent work on these drivers.
It is exactly because of your OpenSource driver work that I will only
buy AMD GPU hardware for my needs (I'm a heavy Blender user on a triple
head system).

I hope that perspective and understanding makes it into the
consciousness of many hardware manufacturers who unfortunately still
tend to cling to their often inferior proprietary solutions.

High quality OpenSource drivers are not a threat to their business
models, but rather are a differentiator that not only opens up the
market for them, but also builds long term customer loyalty.

Thanks again,

Christopher Barry
