I wonder why AMD exclude the hobby/student developers in their dev tools. Why can't you add support to the most user-friendly express edition VS? While the AMD-optimized intend community is so small in contrast to those woking on Intel-optimization, excluding hobby/os/student dev who used free edition compiler/tools is really a bad idea.
Just an example, the most advanced h.264 encoder x264 is os, they do little optimization for AMD but heavily for Intel just because they lack support from you. Though they're woking mostly with GCC, that doesn't means hobby/os developers work on Windows don't deserve to be concerned.
Please consider seriously to add Visual C++/Studio "Express" support to all your development tools!
