    i think marek don't want to because of his studding on university ...

    last time i checket they search windows devs for dev on linux... (no joke)

    they write bullshit about high skills in windows tools and windows bugfixing and stuff like that.

    the personal management simple don't have any plan what they do about linux.

    i can do there job better about finding people for the work.

    The working remotely bit was new to me. I had checked out these postings with great interest the last time that they were mentioned, but I didn't see any mention about being able to work from my current location. If it is the case that these positions can be taken outside of Canada (moving to WI, USA in a few months), I will definitely have to look into it more deeply.

    Intel and AMD hiring lots of developers to work on open source projects... what the hell is going on? Is there something big coming that we don't know about?

    The mythical year of the Linux Desktop?

    I have a feeling that both AMD and Intel are doing it for the same reasons. Both companies have been integrating their GPUs into their mainstream CPUs (e.g. AMD's Fusion). This means that every CPU sale is also a GPU sale. AMD and Intel don't want users running *nix to have a bad out of the box experience. Even if you can install a binary driver from AMD, it's not installed by default in most distributions. Some users might not even know that the fglrx/Catalyst option exists for their system, or their administrators might not give them sufficient privileges to install it themselves.

    Also, in the case of the open-source drivers, it's probably AMD's belief that a high-quality (and community developed/maintained) open source driver might reduce some of the demands on their closed-source developers which would free them up to work on the CAD/Professional apps that the driver is actually meant to be for.

    they only set this bit because they do not found any in local area.

    but i think this freedome bit is a big chance for amd to find a good one.
