Well, ATI/AMD will not release the source of the existing closed source
drivers. They will release a base driver plus enough info to complete it to
a basically full funtioning one
Their problem (much like nVidias problem) is that they are required to keep
it closed, as Vistas DRM idiocy depends partially on it
We are Linux. Resistance is measured in Ohms.
