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."

That is all so uber-weird. Apart from being forced to use fglrx on Linux system even for simple 2D, one practical consequence is that unaccelerated ATI hardware is painfully slow on for instance Opensolaris. Thanks for nothing ATI.

I bet there is a big fat palantir tuned in on Microsoft somewhere up the ATI Orthanc.
