Before last summer I had never really done any OpenGL programming. Now I feel like I know a reasonable amount but certainly still have a lot to learn. I have an Acer Ferrari laptop with an ATI Radeon X700 discrete graphics card in it. I was using the proprietary driver for a while but it was so unstable it just wasn’t worth using. I was hopeful after reading about AMD opening up the specs so that good 3D support can be added to the open source driver.
