i honestly think this should have been released as a release candidit, that way those people bashing wont bash as bad as they are. i mean it was beta tested by a few people but no where near the millions of people on first release, often people were and are still haveing problems with it not running, or major bugs. i feel the least of the worries are from it using .net or it being to big, or hogging memory (btw it doesnt hog memory at all, hell firefox hogs more memory than anything and i still use it, so do many others, and when firefox is hogging my memory my ati processes lower. but by no means do they get big in the first place.... i seen it at 37mb ONCE, only ONCE, it may rise now and then to around 20 now and then, but mostly when their isnt much memory being taken up... basically a handy thing would be to run the control panel then close it, then run something that consumes a large majority of your memory, then let it idle for a while and close it. should make ur ati process smaller, tho thats just theory). anyways, i use these drivers, i know they are being made to improve with every release, and thats one reason why RC should have been named. its not beta, tho enough people will try it out to smooth out the bugs which ati is doing the same thing, and less harsh feedback would have been given.
