Linux "The result of almost a year of development by NVIDIA, Valve and other game developers, the new GeForce R310 drivers are designed to give GeForce customers the best possible Linux-based PC gaming experience - and showcase the enormous potential of the world's biggest open-source operating system." Like I said: something is happening here. No, not all problems will be solved overnight - but something is happening here, and you have to start somewhere. The fact that several gaming companies and NVIDIA are working together on this is a very clear sign that commitments have been made.

Intel joined the GPU-game quite late [...]

Maybe not so... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel740#History - Intel GPUs trace their lineage from well before 3DFX era (curiously, with connection to... Lockheed Martin, of all companies)

I don't think it was the case of Intel planning for FOSS, more a side effect of their GFX chips being quite simple, not supporting many advanced (needing to be licensed) techniques.
