    i started installing Raptr when he was hired, i thought they really wanted him to apply his knowledge on their ****ty software but i was dead wrong , as you very well say all they wanted was to stop him from making them look bad.
    capitalism once again bought the talent not to take advantage of it but to simply waste it, what a shame.
    one more point to AMD ,you gotta love the fanboys defending it when they say they havenĀ“t got the resources to do as better as nvidia does, probably if they didnĀ“t wasted them on this smart ass moves they could hire more qualified people to work for them.

    thats not really fair of you guys, the man has to make a living.

    He said he willl fix stuff if it breaks.

    Ive run raptr in the background since its inclusion in the drivers, ive had no problems with it.

    Nobody is against him.

    He did a very good software for us AMD GPU customers.

    The AMD partner "smart move" shutting down his software is what is annoying for us.

    Nobody is unfair to him, on the contrary he should be rewarded for what he did. I agree with sammarbella below that having Raptr (instead of AMD) hire him, was a big mistake though.

    That was a really stupid move, truth be told.

    Lucky you, I gave it a shot late last year and I finally had to uninstall it because it caused some games to crash, like Alien Isolation for instance.

    Exactly my thought on this.

    I guess you weren't aware of RadeonPro Infinity that he was working on? That was shut down.

    no, new features were halted.

    The current ones are fine for the moment.

    There hasn't been an official release since 2013 and you still deny the fact that the software has seized development (shut down).

    nope.

    its currently feature complete...

    updates will occur when things break per the developer.

    the fact that you WANT MOAR is irrelevant...

    Lol! It's got plenty of bugs to be fixed but no they won't be fixed because development has shut down :)

    I think you have troubles separating software that works but no longer developed with those that work but are being developed.
    RadeonPro has bugs. You say it's complete. John clearly didn't think he had got as far as he could go with RadeonPro as he was making a new feature packed version :) And then...
    No one here is saying RadeonPro is broken or useless. They're saying what AMD did was a bad thing for us all.

    I think you have a problem separating completed software from those that are in active development.

    RP is completed. Period.

    Bugs and all.

    The software is no longer being developed, it doesn't mean it's completed.

    From John himself.

    Take that however you want.
