Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

Hopefully this will help lead to nice, solid ATI/AMD video drivers. Personally, I'm getting sick of buggy drivers (both for ATI/AMD and nvidia cards). I long for the day that I'm able to buy a video card, plug it in, and have it simply work.
