    Phoronix: Details On The AMD Linux Graphics Driver Ported To Windows

    Earlier this month I wrote about the AMD porting their open-source Linux graphics driver to Windows EC7. Here's a few details that were learned in the past two weeks...

    How does this affect the ReactOS project?

    A very good news in my opinion.
    This means more ressources will be put on the open source driver, as AMD had better keep a common code base as much as possible between the two ports. And that means more features will come quicker.

    ^ This.

    I hope that slowly but surely pieces of fglrx can be replaced by this.

    I also hope OpenGL is correctly implemented without duct tape so that PC graphics will actually be faster than consoles and so that we will not have to deal with shitstorms like RAGE anymore...
