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."

Oh yeah.

1. Phoronix stops 'shilling'.
2. ...
3. 100% working Intel drivers!

Thats even more ludicrously unhinged than lemur2s overenthusiastic ranting.

How on earth is my saying effectively to "wait for the results of benchmark testing" supposed to be ranting?

Why all this irrational attack and vitriol? Did someone steal your lunch money?

Cos you're not saying 'lets wait for the benchmarks' you're writing post after post saying this is some kind of enormously significant milestone and we'll all have top notch ATI performance in the near future, without a shred of evidence to back it up.

And youre calling for Keith Packard to step down because of the intel graphics situation.

You trumpet the supposed superiority of the OSS driver development model, and in the next breath rail against its outcomes and insult one of the most important contributors to the effort.

Thats unhinged ranting, plain and simple.
