AMD "Last week we had published The Truth About ATI/AMD & Linux, and to no real surprise, the feedback ranged from beliefs that it was propaganda to others being grateful that AMD finally shared some additional information with their Linux customers about the fglrx development cycle. While the article was far from being propaganda, what had outraged a number of open-source developers were AMD's comments on the R200 support or there the lack of. In this article, we have a few additional comments to share along with what some open-source developers had to say about AMD's information."

ya know its kind of funny. remember 3 or 4 years ago when intel was teh "bad guy" and AMD was suposidly this knight in shining armor. its funny to think that Intel has now been much more coperative with the open source community. Personaly i love it. and i like the intel GMA3000, i hope the linux drivers work well then they come out.

Intel has always been pretty friendly to the open source community. AMD wasn't too bad either, although not quite at the same level. It's just the recently acquired ATI part of their company that isn't.
