Because he probably found, like me, that some programs (i.e. Blender
(which I haven't tried since the latest round of X updates)) don't
seem always behave as expected with the Radeon driver. I don't
actually think its the fault of the radeon driver anyway but that's
the hangman for a lot of people when it comes to graphical issues.
