    Phoronix: Keith Packard Talks X.Org At OSCON 2008

    Following this morning's keynote at OSCON 2008, Intel's Keith Packard had talked about the status of X. This short talk wasn't too different from his recent blog posting and what he had talked about at FOSDEM, but there were a few interesting tid-bits of information. Enclosed are some of the quick notes from his talk.

    Packard hopes the Radeon driver will move along and will be "up to speed" with the Intel driver in the next six months. Keith also is urging that the developers behind these two drivers to cooperate instead of trying to compete.
    Don't you get a warm-fuzzy feeling when an Intel guy gives good advice to AMD driver writers? This is Free & Open Source Software at work.

    Well, see! Others also think they compete (the ati drivers)!

    Yeeeah! Peace and love! put flowers into your guns! aqua-ri-uuuus!

    Well, at least it looks like both Intel and Ati are taking very seriously the status of X, and we all know how badly some support to the X project is needed!

    Can this talk be downloaded from somewhere?

    Or perhaps seen on youtube?
