I would say there needs to be, either on the side or at the top, a "quick links" section linking to the driver downloads pages, Catalyst report form, CROSSFIRE COMPATIBILITY CHART, and perhaps an addendum to the stickies, such as a quick explanation as to why "500w PSU" is not a sufficient explanation and why running a card on such a PSU with only a fraction of that able to be put out at 12v won't work?

Also, might I suggest we ask for Windows 8 topics to be limited right now, seeing as how it is still technically work in progress and will be until the end of October, as well as a quick explanation of what "Legacy" means?

If people talk about it and possible technical issues, it's easier to dodge these issues and produce better drivers by the end of october. Don't forget that now we have AMD people around who read the forums and can report anomalies to AMD.

Also Windows 8 MSDN/TechNet/Eval is officially out in the open. The OS is no longer a beta (or as you say, a "work in progess") and people actually use it legally, me too. The drivers also aren't beta as they have a WHQL signature.

It would be a shame not to be allowed to talk about it or not getting support. Sounds like discrimination.

Except that the people who should be using Windows 8 right now are developers and heads of IT departments and the like, not end users, as it will still be changed and patched and added to for another month before they start pressing the discs for the retail market. And look at the people who are reporting problems with it, it's people with legacy WDDM 1.1 hardware whose final shipping drivers have not even left the AMD labs yet. And besides, even though this is a forum with some AMD boffins floating around, they still should use the Feedback Form, Marc and the other 2 shouldn't have to copy problems off of here and send it to the Catalyst crew. I'm sure AMD knows about most of these problems, and they are problems which shouldn't exist, because Windows 8 is not going to be anything to talk about besides an information aggregation (Windows SmartScreen) and bad UI (Windows 8 UI).

So yes, until October 31st, let's keep the Windows 8 posts out.

You know, developers are end users, and a lot of them are also gamers. Also MSDN/Dreamspark has a lot of university students, who are also gamers and developers at the same time.

it will still be changed and patched and added to for another month before they start pressing the discs for the retail market

Through windows update, yes. And it will continue on for at least 10 years. The MSDN "retail" iso is completely final. The retail disk will be the same byte to byte.

And look at the people who are reporting problems with it, it's people with legacy WDDM 1.1 hardware whose final shipping drivers have not even left the AMD labs yet.

Yes, and we'll always have people complaining unsupported laptops and stuff like that. Still, laptops aren't banned from these forums.

Marc and the other 2 shouldn't have to copy problems off of here and send it to the Catalyst crew

I've seen that happen already. Also they can give feedback to feedback, acknowledge issues etc. A few months ago everyone was complaining about lack of communication from AMD. Now that we have it, you say we shouldn't. Where's the logic in that?

because Windows 8 is not going to be anything to talk about besides an information aggregation (Windows SmartScreen) and bad UI (Windows 8 UI).

So much hate for something you don't even know...

So yes, until October 31st, let's keep the Windows 8 posts out.

Good news: you don't have to read any of them and you're free to send your idea to the moderators. They can easily do it if they feel it right.
