Hi there

I read in the release notes for 8.10 (http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/810) that the r300 series will be dropped from the ATI driver.

I myself have an old 9800pro and wondered what consequenses this will have for me if I upgrade from 8.04? What does the ATI driver have that the other driver doesn't? will this affect regular 2d? or is it just 3d that is affected?

Any help is appriciated:)
