LXer: AMD's Open-Source Radeon Driver After Four Years

Published at LXer:

While the BFS scheduler is getting ready to celebrate its second birthday, in just three weeks AMD's open-source Radeon graphics driver strategy for Linux will be turning four years old. It was on the 6th of September in 2007 that I exclusively broke the news to the world on AMD's open-source strategy, which has ended up being a game-changer in the Linux world. AMD continues to support open-source hardware enablement on their latest graphics processors and recently even hired more developers to work on the code and documentation. How far have they come though in four years?

This is the kinda stuff that keeps a customer like me buying AMD/ATI products. I'm proud of them and I'll keep supporting them as long as they support us. We are voters, even in the market world. Each dollar we spend is a vote of approval.
