AMD Already Has Open-Source Fusion Drivers
Phoronix: AMD Already Has Open-Source Fusion Drivers
There's good news for those of you wanting to quickly go out and pickup an AMD Fusion system as soon as it's available: there's already open-source drivers for Fusion...
The word "probably" in "probably unlikely" is redundant.
I also have to say that it is absolutely amazing how much you can elaborate on things when you see one vague sentence like that one... people obviously have gotta be real careful about what they say around you
Yeah there's also folks with phd in all types of dialectics so watch out for them, but if seriously, it's impossible to write something that would please anyone, there must be someone that will at least pick on you because of a frigging typo.
Wow that one took me off-guard, especially considering the first Ontario/Zacate products aren't supposed to hit the shelves before Jan. 2011
Well, "only" thing left once the Brazos net/subnotebooks are out is finding one without the MS tax... *cough*
Correct according to whom? Does correctness mean anything without a standard to which implementations/sentences must adhere?

What authority does an institute have to define a language? Governments and institutes can be toppled or destroyed (as can the general populace, but it takes much more effort).
Not meaning to be rude, I just find linguistic discussions interesting (perhaps continuing away from the forum would be an idea, to prevent it going too far O.T.)
I should point out that I'm delighted by the news of this open-source support. With that said, AMD are causing me a lot of angst at the moment, if they continue with this level of support then I may become *ahem* "0n3 of t3h f4nb0iz!" :-)
The Fusion parts use GPU cores derived from Evergreen, so the changes required to support Fusion graphics are mostly related to "the bits around the edges". There are still a lot of changes though, albeit mostly small ones.
Alex sent the rebased patches out for review yesterday, so it's not surprising that they are "under review" today
