3D News, GL, DirectX "The last time we had written an article on Nouveau, the community project working on developing an open-source 3D display driver for NVIDIA hardware, was this past January after being enlightened by glxgears finally being able to run on NVIDIA's NV4x GPUs. Since then many developments have occurred with this open-source NVIDIA driver as we have covered in several news postings. In this article today we will share with you where the Nouveau project stands today from a user perspective as well as testing out the driver on a few more NVIDIA systems."

Actually, there *is* a project similar to this for AMD / ATI graphics cards. It is called avivo and it is located here:
http://gitweb.freedesktop.org/?p=avivo/xf86-video-avivo.git;a=summa...

They are currently trying to get acceleration for the r500 based cards working like they do with the r300 based cards. Long live open source!

Edit:
Adding link talking about this driver a bit. Not everyone wants to just read through code:
