3D News, GL, DirectX "We have been overwhelmed with requests to take a serious look at the frame-rate performance differences between the various open-source and proprietary contenders. 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."

"Why cant Linux developers and the Linux community just respect companies intellectual property? "

Yeah, funny how so many companies making network chipsets has no problem documentation their interfaces. Or Intel or AMD with their CPU's for that matter.
Get this straight, it's not about their IP, all that is wanted is documentation on how to interface with the hardware, noone cares what special, clever tricks nVidia or ATI does in their own drivers.
