Our first article on this topic, which will likely be the first of a series of examinations, is looking at the differences between the X.Org open-source ATI Radeon driver and that of ATI's official but proprietary fglrx display driver."

I wish ATI and NVIDIA would just agree to not sue each other and then both open up their specs. After all, the secrecy is not about keeping techniques secret from others, but rather to not as easily get sued for patent infringement or similar. (Yet a reason to hate patents.)
