AMD AMD started delivering on their word of providing GPU specifications to the open-source community without a Non-Disclosure Agreement, and now with the 2007 X Developer Summit having come to a close, we asked several key members of the X.Org community on how they judge AMD's recent move. They were also asked if they believe NVIDIA will follow suit in helping the open-source community. Those that responded were David Airlie, Daniel Stone, Jerome Glisse, Stephane Marchesin, and Oliver McFadden. Mark Shuttleworth had also previously commented on AMD's efforts.

Don't worry, their drivers even suck when using Windows. One time I had to use modified drivers (Omega drivers) to get it running at all. There wasn't even 2D acceleration!

I have no idea WHY it didn't work (it's not like Windows is very verbose there) but it just didn't. Okay, the Linux-drivers suck even harder, but it's not like those Windows-drivers are anything near "good".
