As well as every other API.g3d, oh ya, they are going support the API that nvidia put out.
Do tell... what exactly does a starwars quote from the 70's have to do with video cards?"These are not the droids you are looking for"
www.phoronix.com -- have a look. Michael already did.LMFAO, go ahead and bench Catalyst vs FOSS (never mind the superior nvidia blobs)
Of course, the results are IRRELEVANT since the numbers are all FAR above useful.
Come up with something original"These are not the droids you are looking for"
Huh? Relate this to ANYTHING that matters.BS, there are many extensions that could be used, also do you think something like the upcoming Rage is going to run on FOSS drivers? Heck just read the forums and look at all the fun people had trying to get simple stuff like Humble Bundle stuff going on FOSS drivers.
What about KDE?Don't forget KDE.
NVIDIA == CRAP BLOB
AMD == CRAP BLOB + EXCELLENT OSS.
CRAP BLOB + EXCELLENT OSS > CRAB BLOB
Did you REALLY test nouveau? It definitely advances MUCH faster than ati oss drivers. Of course you can get specs for ati cards, but that does not matter that much when you compare features and speed (at least for nvidia 8+).
I have never had the impression that nouveau advances at more than a snail's pace. They started LONG before AMD's open source work began and remain behind. Which is not to say that the work isn't impressive -- that it most certainly IS.
And by the way... nvidia blob is NOT by ANY means "excellent". It is a complete piece of barely supported garbage that usually ****DOES NOT WORK****. If you're OK with being blocked from updating your kernel for 2+ years because they refuse to fix a debilitating regression, then have fun. That would NOT satisfy me and I will be caught dead before giving those thieves even ONE CENT of my hard earned money for their trash.
