Maybe some hope of release from the hell that is PowerVR
I can dream, can't I?
The dream continues like this:
Embedded Integrators like TI, find that a cheap fully open plaform is a real value proposition for their customers and start dropping PowerVR like a hot rock.
PowerVR responds by open-sourcing their drivers.
xgi and powerVR compete on feature the way that ATI and nvidia do at the desktop and workstation level.
Interesting platforms like the beagleboard are often hobbleded by their inclusion of PowerVR video chipsets.
I bought an ATI card on just the announcement that they were opening their specs.
