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.

Well, I may a small minority when I use Linux, but I am the man making the decision when my department buys hundreds of computers. And they ALL get Nvidia cards. ATI sucks. Period. End of story. They have a lot of work to do to get away from that reputation. I am happy that they are trying though. Who knows, in a couple years it may be Nvidia who sucks, not ATI.
