Yes, I know, but I've reached the point where I just want stuff to work, rather than spending hours tweaking it. The days I used to spend post-clean-install tweaking dozens of settings have gone (even for Windows, although with Windows the post-install ritual was more surrounding drivers). Largely, I admit, because I spend more and more time in the commandline, so as long as that is how I like it, I'm sorted.

Basically, the more I have to worry about the OS, the less time I spend working.

I never said they're not supporting AMD at all, I said they're not supporting the binary blob driver. Open source AMD drivers are still welcome.

So no openCL?

edit: As I said, I've not used SuSE for a long time - probably over a decade now, and the last AMD/ATi card I had was a 4870X2 (although I have got a 6970 I tested out for a while which I got as a hand-me-down...) sadly, CUDA has become a deciding factor in my GPU purchases.

I think it basically boils down to your use-case. I like Ubuntu, though.
