So the Steam Hardware Survey got updated again, this time they are now including lots of Linux distro's so we can see just how popular they are!

It's good to see see them do it, but we really need a Linux only category like they have for Mac.

It basically looks like they have expanded their full results and taken some out of the "Other" category.

  • More Radeon & AMDGPU Fixes Line-Up For Linux 4.10
    Alex Deucher has sent in another batch of fixes for the Radeon and AMDGPU DRM drivers for the Linux 4.10 kernel. These fixes include support for a few peculiar Southern Islands graphics processors in AMDGPU and Radeon drivers. The affected SI GPUs now supported are those needing the "si58" memory controller microcode. Unfortunately, haven't been able to find much other details on the particular SI chips affected.
  • Mesa 17.0 Saw Less Code Changes Than Earlier Releases, But More Notable Features
    With Mesa 17.0 up to its release candidates and being under a feature freeze, I explored this morning how the size of the changes for Mesa 17.0 compare to earlier Mesa milestones. Mesa 17.0 ships with many exciting end-user changes such as OpenGL 4.5 for RadeonSI, OpenGL 4.5 for Haswell, many RADV and ANV Vulkan driver improvements, improved OpenGL 4.x Nouveau support, and many other features I'll recap shortly in a Mesa 17.0 feature overview article.
