Is calling a thing ridiculous called a "personal attack" these days? When
one of core d3d developers (who happens to work for CodeWeavers) starts to
advertise free drivers in preference to proprietary ones, while main target
and revenue source for CodeWeavers currently are MacOSX users, this at least
sounds weird and strange, especially taking into account amount of Mac/Apple
specific quirks in the wined3d code (including supported extenstions tweaks).
Or probably 'make test' in Wine no longer crashes and has no failures with
nouveau drivers? Or probably now it's nouveau who privdes bleeding edge
hardware and drivers for linux? Not even mentioning that Henri decided to
completely ignore questions in the patch.

Am I missing something?
