AMD AMD will soon deliver open graphics drivers, said Henri Richard just a few minutes ago, and the audience at the opening keynote of the Red Hat Summit broke into applause and cheers. Richard, AMD's executive vice president of sales and marketing, promised: "I'm here to commit to you that it's going to get done." He also promised that AMD is "going to be very proactive in changing way we interface with the Linux community".

Hey dude - you should chill just a bit. The quote said "AMD will soon deliver open graphics drivers...", not "AMD will soon deliver open SOURCE graphics drivers...". I also followed the links that some of the other posters provided addressing this - did you? What I said was that several posters here interpreted this to mean open source drivers were coming from ATI/AMD.


"The open sourcing of graphics drivers will indeed be good news, but itís not a big surprise. "

From this: http://enterpriselinuxlog.blogs.techtarget.com/2007/05/09/amd-will-...


That's why it's misinformation ! Everyone saying bullshit, adding words, making it looks like nothing true.

They ain't open-sourcing anything! Even if the article says it.
