Graphics, User Interfaces While the BFS scheduler is getting ready to celebrate its second birthday, in just three weeks AMD's open-source Radeon graphics driver strategy for Linux will be turning four years old . . . which has ended up being a game-changer in the Linux world.

How far have they come though in four years?

Err, what?? This is the point I was discussing, first:

In a few months time it is likely that the radeon open source Gallium3D drivers will overtake the closed source driver fglrx for performance.

Then just now:

In terms of pure raw performance, it is probable that open source drivers will only ever catch up to closed source drivers.
