Well, I'm finally on the bandwagon. Ubuntu 13.04 is the only mainstream OS I can count on for good support of AMD's latest drivers. I'm annoyed that I had to cave, since Ubuntu is my least-favorite Linux, but here I am.
Honestly, it's not as bad as I thought.
Anyone have any tips or tricks for improving 13.04? I'm a little shocked that Unity doesn't even have multiple-desktop out of the box, which comes standard with every other major UI.
Looking forward to some productive forum-slogging. Ah, a throwback to the bad old days.
Awesome review! Was really considering the 780 until I read this. The form factor on this card is great for my dinky case. Good stuff, keep it up (and you should really think about adding a series on Linux gaming and hardware, with Steam Machines coming down the river. I had some extremely negative experiences with an R9 290 and I'm exchanging it for a new NVidia card, probably this one, with a second or third one being added over the next year or two if needed.)
