AMD "On the same day that we learn VIA's Linux support is basically dead and after a troubling week for Intel with regards to open-source graphics support for their new Sandy Bridge CPUs, Advanced Micro Devices has come forward and released open-source graphics driver support for their AMD Radeon HD 6000 series of graphics cards."

Accelerated video is still some way away, however XvMC and VDPAU may be coming to the ATI R600 Gallium3D driver as well as the R300 Gallium3D driver.

Some new information on the current state of XvMC acceleration: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/mesa-dev/2011-January/004731....

Also, just to clarify this article: the current support is for the 68xx and down cards. The 69xx cards use a different architecture and support for them is estimated to still be 1-3 months away.
