AMD talks about ATI
,----[ Quote ]
| Then I wondered whether AMD's acquisition might result in the opening up
| of ATI's graphics drivers, which are now distributed only in binary form.
| Lastly, and remember you heard it here, AMD is strongly considering
| open-sourcing at least a functional subset of ATI's graphics drivers.
| It's time for X Window System, OpenGL, and client virtualization for
| which ATI binary drivers aren't available to escape the ghetto of the
| 1980s-era framebuffer. And what a boon for PR. If AMD?s graphics cards
| were the only ones with open device drivers, it might affect a
| buying decision or two.
OSDir suggests/confirms it it likely to be a valid argument.
