    Perhaps. I don't know exactly what AMD's plan are, but IMHO embedded Linux doesn't have a good image with regard to being open source friendly. It seems to me that is mostly about taking the free Linux source code adding some proprietary code to it and then shipping the whole product as a binary firmware image and possibly adding en encrypted bootloader to prevent the user from installing custom roms.

    I read a while ago AMD was looking for Android driver developers with experience with video decode acceleration. It would be nice if we regular GNU/Linux users could also see some benefit from that...

    Thanks. Hopefully this will boost development on g3d and we can have a feature complete stack.

    Since we got you answering questions are there any news on the UVD front???

    There's still the one remaining slot still as well. For reference, Corbin Simpson, Tom Stellard, and Marek Olk who have contributed a lot to the open-source Radeon graphics stack are reportedly not interested in taking the spot on the basis of continuing their school education.
    Just so there is no confusion. I am graduating in a month and the position at AMD is one that I am interested in.

    I hope you'll succeed in getting the position and start working soon!

    but setting priorities based on Phoronix forum posts are very effective!

That'd be cool and all, but (1) probably not open source, and (2) useless to me.

    It's not like I'm a real customer anyway; I've only sunk about $2000 in graphics cards over the last 5-6 years....
    but.,.. this "embedded customer" is very helpfully.. because its Google

    and you talk about Android but this is not about android its about chromeOS

    and google really try to hurt microsoft very hard!

    maybe google is more frendly to opensource and they just don't like the catalyst

    be sure they hire what they can get. no matter 1 month or 2 month ...

    its simple if amd do not hire you then intel does or nvidia or google or arm people.

    ... so don't worry... you get a job.
