Hrm. So does anyone remember Henri Richard? The ATI exec at Red Hat Summit earlier this year that made a statement about how things were going to improve for ATI and Linux? (Remember this? http://www.0xdeadbeef.com/weblog/?p=288 )
Well, it looks like he's leaving AMD now: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=8569
Hopefully this doesn't have any negative impact on whatever Linux driver development efforts are going on at ATI, but still, that's discomforting to read.
