I am not against AMD. Where did I wrote this?
I'm using at home Athlon64 X2 with an Radeon X1550 card. It works. But not all features: 3D and Stand-by (suspend to RAM) and Hibernate (suspend to disk) don't work
! Why? Because no special/complete drivers in FreeBSD for Radeon! Thats reality! No idiology.
And a AMD-APU has build-in Radeon HD chips. Thats fact!
If you want a FreeBSD optimized system, you must buy hardware about facts and not about idiology. It's fact that AMD don't publish specifications about Radeons. And its fact, that they don't support FreeBSD with a (binary) driver (in contrast to Nvidia). Don't blame me, do blame AMD!
