Nobody is looking at the Linux driver, as if it isn't AMD that's writing it, or that it doesn't effect anything. Since the days of AMDGPU the Linux driver is basically a reflection of the Windows driver that had to be submitted earlier, just because of the approval requirements of the kernel. AMD is moving to a unified driver for both Linux and Windows. Vega probably has the most driver development pre-release than any other AMD GPU. This is going to be very interesting. It's really sad when people actually like monopolies. I wish that it wasn't only AMD going against both Intel and NVIDIA at the same time, because loving a free market seems to immediately make us AMD fanboys or something, which is gross. I don't care about any damn company, just my performance/dollar, and that's not getting any better with monopolies around.
