    Default AMD Is Indeed Losing More Linux Developers

    Phoronix: AMD Is Indeed Losing More Linux Developers

    At the beginning of the week I reported that AMD got rid of at least three of their Linux kernel developers. It's becoming more clear though that it's not only three long-time Linux kernel developers they have let go...

    Does this also mean Vishera was the last CPU ?..

    Leaves little choice for future systems...

    Last AMD cpu properly supported under linux? Perhaps, if they don't hire people elsewhere.

    Default I really hope

    they don't kill OSS drivers for video cards.

    If they do, i wont be buying anything from them again... So far all CPU i had since 90's - was under their brand. I was just hoping to go for their video cards, pretty much decided that my next upgrade for video will be theirs, but looks like another decade with Nvidia is coming... Looks like Intel will be only way to go with CPU.
    It's freaking sad...

    they just drop anything INTEL-86_86 like because they go with ARM-64bit in the future

    there new opterons in 2014 will be 32-64core ARM 64bit system with APU (Radeon hd8000) technique.

    Intel just deserve this. then all linux people go with MIPS or ARM and intel get there "monopole" for anything else.

    If AMD is indeed trying to break into the ARM based microserver market, then it will need some serious Linux engineers.

    Unless AMD expects to sell Windows on ARM microservers.

    Is there any chance we'll see arm desktop chips from amd??

    And yes the market needs more competition.

    This doesn't seem to mesh with their plans to introduce 64-bit ARM chips. I would think the consequence of that decision is to bring on more Linux developers.

    They're not going to compete in the ARM space without a solid group of Linux developers.
