    Default 3D work started?

    airlied added a branch named r500-support to the DRM and xf86-video-ati (not much there yet). I don't know if that means that he has cleared his NDA with ATI/AMD but it's a good sign.

    It seems to be getting better every day:

    Looks like AMD/ATI is now really into the Linux business, thanks for lifting that NDA from Dave Airlied.

    This explaining post is really promising since there is now a different way to use the r500 cards with an open driver. And I do assume that this one is already rather usable thinking of the good work by Dave before.

    I am in the middle of testing the Radeon driver on R500/600 GPUs. What a glorious day!!!

    Did I just see Lucifer skating to work this morning??

    Heh... There might just be hope for them in the short term instead of having to wait for the long term to straighten out the situation.
