OpenCL on linux


I've seen a lot of posts about OpenCL and how the whole parallel computing thing is going to make big differences; and the benefits of having an open, hardware agnostic API for this.

Who's responsibility is it to implement OpenCL on linux and were does this implementation fit into linux's architecture?

AMD has come up with a linux SDK for OpenCL. This is released as part of the existing ATI's Streaming SDK.

For more information.
Though I have not completely drowned into it. But felt that it was a good start for any OpenCL crazy guy.
