With the current 14.x drivers (14.4 and 14.6 beta), my desktop environment does not display after booting. All I get is a black screen with a blinking cursor in the top-left corner of the screen. The 13.35 drivers work ok (though there are weird little glitches like alt-tabbing menus in gnome-shell not displayed correctly, and blank screens on Witcher 2 when starting the game a second time without restarting and graphical glitches that make Metro Last Light unplayable).
