Re: Better open drivers and docs

Hi

Nvidia really seems to be the odd man out here at this point. VIA has published a good deal of documentation and has contracted Harald Welte to help them in their efforts

ATI drivers are getting better too with David Airlie (Red Hat) working on it.

Indeed, with AMD, VIA and the recent announcement from Atheros about their ath9k driver (and improvements on their ath5k driver), Intel and their GEM, and many, many other hardware enhancements. Sure AMD will still have their binary blob for graphics, but they're coming clean with open source support for their products, open source 3D support for their recent hardware should arrive soon, and maybe their previous hardware can get improvements from these recent releases. Interesting times indeed.
