This is nice and all... but I would seriously kill for a good 10.2 modified/enhanced driver... the last to support legacy gpu's...

I myself work on many a PC where the owner can afford the MEM/HDD upgrade (speaking laptop here) and could even run Win7 if it werent for the total lack of any good modified/enhanced driver package (based on 10.2) for them...

I am typing from one of them right now... Mobility Xpress 200... Its got 2GB of mem and a 7200RPM HDD... but since not a single decent legacy driver for win7... well... catch my drift?

Thanks either way, nice to see this done to AMD/ATI drivers finally
