how are you going to get the documentation to write the drivers? ATI has never completely documented their GPUs.
Sure, it's a shame. Just like new models being completely incompatible with previous ones. I guess GPUs suffer dramatic changes through different generations.
It would be great if a couple of tweaks in an old driver were enough to drive a new model, even if it doesn't use at all any new features.
Just because old models will be completely unavalaible some day... Going back to the scrapyard age that many amigans had to suffer for years is too hard to take at this age.
