Harald Welte reports in a blog post "]http://laforge.gnumonks.org/weblog/2008/08/29/#20080829-via-xorg-driver-opensource"] that VIA has released an open source Xorg driver for their integrated graphics chips. "I am very happy to see this! It's one more step that VIA has been working on to improve and show their support for Free Software and Linux. Please notice that this driver (as opposed to VIA's proprietary binary-only Xorg driver) has no support for 3D, hardware video codec or TV encoder support. Nevertheless, it is a big step ahead."
