Some people seem to bemoan the lack of h.264 decoding. Personally, I'm not 
very fussed about it (watching video on 2.8" isn't much fun in my view)... 
Personally I far prefer true open source drivers to binary only that will 
have one more feature but then stop working at will (which occurs rather 
frequently with the currently shipping ATI fglrx drivers, BTW).
