Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

Lets also remember the length of time that it took for them to finally open up the specifications to ATI graphics cards (even now the documentation isn't complete). Again, AMD is its own worst enemy - and ultimately they have no one else to blame apart from themselves.


What do you believe is still missing from AMD/ATI?

As far as I was aware, the last of the documentation, and some open source code as well, has been released.

The developers are working right now on a full-featured open source driver. It isn't that far away. When it is released, that will make ATI graphics chips easily the most powerful and capable GPUs with open source 3D drivers.
