AMD "Not only is AMD providing the open-source community with their ATI GPU specifications, but they have also been partnering with Novell on the development of a new open-source display driver. We've been telling you about AMD's open-source work all month, and today the new driver is finally available for download. It is still very much a work in progress and isn't much further along than the open-source R500 Avivo driver. However, this new driver does support the Radeon HD 2000 (R600) family. This new X.Org driver is called RadeonHD."

Next year will be too late. I'm looking to build a new system in the next couple of months. I'm sick of being considered second class because I'm using FreeBSD instead of Linux. Since this driver won't be ready, I'll be going with an Intel chipset. You snooze you lose.
