AMD "Last year when AMD announced their acquisition of ATI it led many to wonder how this would impact the quality of their Linux support and driver. Some had even speculated that AMD would be opening the code to at least a subset of their graphics drivers, and while this issue has come up again more recently, we will cover this particular topic in a different article. In this article we will be exposing what truly consists of the ATI/AMD driver development cycle and ultimately what they are really doing to improve their image in the Linux community."

ATI and their reputation

I loath ATI cards, back in my Microsoft days they were nothing but problems. In the Linux world they're an even bigger headache, Nvidia provides pretty damn stable drivers. This goes for both the Microsoft and the Linux world. Well the recognize the problem they have, the jury is still out if they will improve. Even if they do and provide stellar support in the near future they still have to overcome their reputation.

My two bits ......
