Re: AMD/ATI Commits to open source drivers
Umm... anyway back to the thread topic:
Unfortunately, Henri Richard never explicitly said "open source graphics drivers", he said open graphics drivers, which could mean a number of things. Nor did he specify how "open" they would be; it's possible only portions of the code will be available which interface with binaries.
As said earlier, if they aren't actually available, the statement is worth nothing.
