arguably some other people lose sight of all users but themselves...

the 7.1 update adds a lot better support for radeon and for Intel video
and even 2D nvidia... Intel video has a market share of about 50%,
radeon of about 20%.... that's not numbers you can ignore in the "you
ignore the users" comment. To some degree NOT doing this update is
ignoring the users.
