Do so, it's the new kid on the block and quite promising. I've been using Xmonad myself and tried i3 the other day. I like it, but I had some problems with the window urgency hint and little time to mess around and fix that.

ATI drivers are more susceptible than nVidia with unstable overclocks, a decent amount of people don't bother testing properly then complain.

For example, I can make my nVidia drivers on Windows or Linux crash extremely often if I want to with an unstable OC.

Yeah but I can make my card work in Linux with or without a stable OC, I think that is the issue here. lol

Naw, AMD makes good cards but they can't make magic drivers appear right after purchasing a company. It's going to take time and I have no doubt they will do something good. They better too or Fusion is going to be a mess in linux.

as far as amd/ati... i love amd processors, hate amd/ati graphics cards i must have gotten lucky a long time ago when i first tried linux, i was using a radeon 9250 pro and i even got it working good enough to play doom3 with stable frames in ubuntu
even tho ubuntu is "based" on debian, they do a lot of things that debian doesn't...they spent a great deal of time and energy messing with the init, for whatever reasons, its a mess at times imho

in ubuntu if i put this line in my blacklist:

#blacklist nouveau cause we hate it
blacklist nouveau

it ignores it, if i did that in say my slackware install, it honors it...looking at my modprobe.d folder after installing the nvidia drivers from a ppa, i did find this file:

nouveau-kms.conf which has this line in it:

options nouveau modeset=0

this wasn't there before...is this how it is disable in debian? or other distro's now?

well i don't OC my graphics card, could be why my nvidia card doesn't crash in linux or windows regardless of the driver i'm using hehe. i'm sure you can make anything crash, i can make linux and windows crash by running a unstable cpu OC

i see plenty of post where the OP claims "no OC" on their card, but still having a lot of problems, i see people who can upgrade to the latest windows ati drivers with no problem, but others, are forced to reinstall cause they have no idea how to fix the problems it creates, even when "rolling" back to a previous driver fails...

i'm also not saying nvidia drivers are rock solid without problems, but what i am saying, ati has a lot more problems with drivers than nvidia does imho, and for the very reason ati has had virtually no real support for linux, also affects my decision in purchasing nvidia over ati...yeah ati has linux drivers, but when you see 200 post a week in the ubuntu forum about ati driver problems...tells me ati doesn't care about the linux community...as long as nvidia keeps providing awesome drivers for linux...i will keep buying nvidia cards

we have a laptop here, that has a ati gpu in it, rma'd it twice so far, they keep sending it back saying nothing is wrong, but it seriously unstable with ati drivers (thats what the minidumps point to as the problem.)

ati drivers have gotten better since amd has purchased them...but to me this shows that amd doesn't have the required resources to maintain their technology, and will eventually fail...

So I'm using i3 (on my i3 rig lol) and I think I like it more than openbox. The concep of tiling wm sounded weird to me but I don't know how I ever used anything else it just makes sense.

tiling been around since like windows 1.0

even tho i like "snap" in windows and kde 4.6, and often arrange my open windows in this fashion, and setup hotkeys to make the process faster, tiling managers drive me bonkers!

i should check out i3, as i haven't had the pleasure to try it out, i think the last tiling manager i tried was xonamad or something like that...i could see the advantages of it, if i was using it to monitor a lot of things at once, but as a working environment, it wasn't what i found to be suitable...but to each his own.

its actually called i3?

Yeah I always use keyboard shortcuts to switch/move windows or launch programs and things like that so I think it works better for my style.

It is actually called i3. Not sure how it's packaged in other repositories but for Arch theres and i3 meta package or the individual i3-wm i3-status and i3-lock. It uses dmenu.

Heres a link: http://i3.zekjur.net/

It is a bit complicated to configure still learning, but I'm enjoying even the base stock configuration. It sounded easier than some of the other tiling wm's.
