    Default AMD's New Open-Source Employees

    Phoronix: AMD's New Open-Source Employees

    Joining John Bridgman and Alex Deucher in working on the open-source driver stack at AMD are two new, but familiar, names: Michel Dänzer and Christian König. These two Linux graphics driver developers are now officially AMD employees...

    Understaffed less now. Nice AMD! Slowly but surely Linux keeps on improving and I've never regretted buying AMD products. This is a rare case of products improving over time, instead of declining in worth.

    Now that HTMLv5 is comming, Java is open sourced and videographics are finally starting to run respectably compared to a few years ago, the only thing remaining on my wishlist is Coreboot. That stinking BIOS needs to die, yesterday!

    well, you're in luck since AMD announced a few weeks ago that they'll support coreboot on all future chipsets!

    Default i hope this doesn't kill off the push for video acceleration code

    I can't imagine AMD's embedded partners care too much about that feature. But maybe I'm wrong and AMD will actually be putting resources into it - that would be awesome.

    Agreed.

    However, there aren't any commits for pipe-video for almost a month now...
    On the other hand bridgman mentioned they have something bigger coming down the pipe. No idea, though, if it has any relation to this.

    BTW, they still should recruit Tom and Marek. Then the team would be full!
    (Oh, I just imagined what would happen if they did that... :O )

    finally a team of dedicated support. lets hope we see a difference, the radeon drivers have a long way to go to be competitive to basically all drivers, proprietary and open source.
