Everyone else has... I don't see what could be so proprietary about it. No one needs info on the way the hardware works, just on the HW->SW interface. Now granted, sometimes that gives info on the hardware itself (like in the case of a lot of video cards), but not always. Most of the required information is just which memory addresses to read and write to get the thing initialized (at least, as far as AGP goes. Other subfunctions of the board may, of course, be different).

If they don't want to release chipset info (I wouldn't), then they should release an agp driver (binary is fine).
That is a good point, of course.
