    I almost always use the stock drivers too, but I have used Omega's once or twice. ATI has to ship the drivers configured to pass WHQL testing, whereas Omega is free to set different defaults with regard to Vsync being enabled or disabled, for example. The Omega drivers also provide GUI access to additional driver tunables that aren't visible in the stock Catalyst UI. You could also get at these via a registry editor, or use ATI Tray Tool, ATITool, or whatever.

    In many ways, I liked the layout of Omega's control panel better than the stock one. The tradeoffs he makes in his drivers tend to be sensible ones. So, while I wouldn't describe myself as a fan of the Omega drivers, I can definitely understand why Omega *has* a lot of fans.

    I had to quote this just to see it again, but yeah, it's probably safe to say that the ATI driver is being delayed for the same reasons the nV one is. :) Howabout some King Crimson for Omega:

    Uh, before people started making donations en masse a few weeks ago, he did "just stop making them". He hasn't made any drivers in, what, 3 months now?
