Last week, Henri Richard, AMD’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, told an audience at the opening keynote of the Red Hat Summit promised open source graphics drivers for ATI products.
Richard's is quoted as saying “I’m here to commit to you that it’s going to get done.” Additionally, he promised that AMD was “going to be very proactive in changing way we interface with the Linux community.”
Two questions. Is he serious? If so, when?
Are you looking forward to the day that open source drivers are available for ATI hardware? Would this change how you spend your money? Would you like to see more companies follow suit?
