Know what I would like to see from AMD, or Nvidia or anyone that often releases drivers like this.

Take a "Tic - Toc" approach. In one version add the new stuff and in alternating versions fix everything that was wrong in the previous version, without adding anything including bugs.

That way I, along with other sane people, can just download the version that likely won't mess things up and ignore these "game ready", or whatever, versions.

That would require reason and common sense. Something severely lacking today pretty much everywhere.
