AMD "Last week we had published The Truth About ATI/AMD & Linux, and to no real surprise, the feedback ranged from beliefs that it was propaganda to others being grateful that AMD finally shared some additional information with their Linux customers about the fglrx development cycle. While the article was far from being propaganda, what had outraged a number of open-source developers were AMD's comments on the R200 support or there the lack of. In this article, we have a few additional comments to share along with what some open-source developers had to say about AMD's information."

nv is provided by nVidia to Xorg, and only they can maintain it. Nouveau is not using any nv code (in fact they based off a BeOS/Haiku reverse eng'd nvidia 3d driver) because nv code was obfuscated in 1999, maybe done to prevent 3d use.

I saw a mailing list link a few days ago where Keith Packard said he was trying to get Intel to release the new specifications for new GMA chipsets...
