    That doesn't make sense at all.
    First off, there's nothing wrong or special with Intel doing it's own OpenCL implementation:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenCL...entation_dates

    Secondly, while I completely agree that this specific effort is very wasteful, It's only 0.1 release and it's quite small. So if the Gallium3D devs are right and it's duplicating a lot of code, then it shouldn't be a whole lot of work working it into Gallium3D.

    Besides, this is graphics we're talking about: Intel is competing against AMD and ARM on the SoC so it might make business sense for them to go solo.

    After all, it's still LLVM (and not gcc) with a backend and as long as it's still FOSS...

    Mind you LLVM is in the same sense a "fragmentation" of GCC. I think the competition has been doing good to both.

    Oh, so you're just a Canonitroll. Now it makes sense.

    In my view this is very very simple story:
    Someone wrote an OpenCL lib as a hobby work and others think it's waste of time for a serious OpenCL lib.
    That's it.

    Well, you made me look. I wouldn't say hobby work:
    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/beignet/log/

    It seems like the recent commits took a sizeable code and brought it up to specs and fixed a few bugs and such. Make your own conclusions, I personally don't know anything about OpenCL and couldn't care less about the politics
