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."

I have no answer for that. You are the one that defends open source graphic drivers. You should provide the answer, instead of asking the question.


I have a nomination:

I'm looking forward to Xorg 7.5 and open source ATI drivers coming out perhaps by the end of the year. Then maybe the recent seems-almost-sabotage of X might finally be coming to an end.
