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.

"""

Please give examples on how INTEL has the best support out of the box.

"""

My Compaq Presario's ATI Express 200M video chipset has no 3D support whatsoever out of the box. And very poor 3D performance under fglrx.

Meanwhile, Intel's chip sets all have excellent support... right out of the box.

I wish I'd bought an Intel based notebook.
