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.

It would be easier and more feasible that the project will be a success. Thus the project might be finished sooner as it attracts more developers.
