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.

It would be interestin to see ATI come thru and be favored video card company instead of nvidia, since everyone has rushed out and bought nvidia and provided them with tons of cash.

Or maybe that was the plan all along. First, nvidia is awesome. Then, ATI steps up freedom. The nvidia steps up freedom. Then they both come out with new cards and start the whole thing all over - milking us all for money.

I will stick to my onboard via for now...
