AMD AMD started delivering on their word of providing GPU specifications to the open-source community without a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and now with the 2007 X Developer Summit having come to a close, we asked several key members of the X.Org community on how they judge AMD's recent move. They were also asked if they believe NVIDIA will follow suit in helping the open-source community. Those that responded were David Airlie, Daniel Stone, Jerome Glisse, Stephane Marchesin, and Oliver McFadden. Mark Shuttleworth had also previously commented on AMD's efforts.

well, if they give the user the ability to give feedback and after 15+ times iving feedback with all the times a simple question like "please reply that you at least have seen it" and it stays qute, it doesn't ive me a warmand fuzzy feeling. Especially if the do acknowledge a ew bugs in teir drivers for 3+ years.

People know that switching from X to a vc always was a dead system, for years. Stuff like that cause people to state that the drivers are crappy.

I also fail to see why you talk about windows sales, the article is about unix (AND ALIKES), not windows.
