I am AMD users since 2010, I have 2 PCs and 1 laptop with AMD, everything was fine and recommended AMD because it did not give more problems using ubuntu or derivatives, until version 16.04.

I do not know why they left Catalyst because it served, now AMD GPUPRO does not compare, my PC with ElementaryOS and Radeon HD7870-DC2-2GD5 and AMD GPUPRO does not render if Y is greater than 1000, with Catalyst there were no problems with resolution  Y greater than 1000. At least Steam works well and my family can play.

With another PC that has AMD A10-7860K, AMDGPU-PRO does not start the lightdm, this happens with ElementaryOS and KDE Neon, this error did not appear to me with Catalyst.
Using the default drivers for Ubuntu 16.04 using the 4.8 kernel drivers does not work Steam and TvTime, with Catalyst all OK.

I hope they do not tell me to use Ubuntu and not a derivative, that would tell me that they do not work in AMDGPU-PRO like they did in Catalyst that worked ok in ElementaryOS or distributions with KDE. I also do not expect to be told to buy a graphics card, then I will have to buy NVIDIA and stop recommending AMD because with NVIDIA Steam works in ArchLinux.
