Default Re: AMD to open up graphics specs

They could be. If people were unhappy with Intel's binary driver, they could use the open source driver to build a Windows driver.

For example, let's say Intel drops support (no more binary driver updates) for GMA950 and earlier hardware, but adds a sets of new features to the open source driver. Do you honestly think that the functionality wouldn't be back-ported?

If it isn't, does that say something about open source, or the Windows development community?

I agree on Nouveau - Nvidia has the opportunity to get out of the driver business (a cost center for their line of business), and reallocate resources to hardware, where their revenue stream comes from. The only reason not to, is if they believe they can't compete on hardware alone. I would find that hard to believe.

It just gets better and better. I wonder what's going on inside Nvidia these days?
