Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

That is all fine from a personal point of view. I too bought my last hardware with ATI graphics specifically because ATI published the specifications for open source developers. Excellent. Kudos to AMD/ATI.

I bought an ATI-card because they released specs, all I got was a barly working and slow card, what I quickly replaced with a nvidia card.

Maybe the linux kernel 2.6.32 will give me a card, I can actually use.
