AMD "Not only is AMD providing the open-source community with their ATI GPU specifications, but they have also been partnering with Novell on the development of a new open-source display driver. We've been telling you about AMD's open-source work all month, and today the new driver is finally available for download. It is still very much a work in progress and isn't much further along than the open-source R500 Avivo driver. However, this new driver does support the Radeon HD 2000 (R600) family. This new X.Org driver is called RadeonHD."

If you are sick of being a second class citezen, do something about it. Write documentation, get people playing with, or learn to write code for FreeBSD. FreeBSD is pretty cool for what it is and still isn't too bad. The lack of really solid SMP support kills it for me though.

Open Source is about communities. Building them is the key to success. Financial backing also works.

Never underestimate the power of large numbers of people with common goals.
