Right??? In every sector of computing. Amd HAS to strengthen their presence here since Nvidia has been treding more and more Linux waters. That and if their future roadmap really points more to "small computing" and the mobile space it must start becoming more familar with the seas conditions.
Making its self more compatible with Linux is definitely a way to give AMD a boost and level the playing field with Nvidia
AMD has always been good for Linux in a low key way. Happy to see this move from Low Key. Be even happier if I heard that part of this move includes rehiring those German Linux developers who helped make GL work.
"FINALLY!!!" just doesn't cut it!! If this is anywhere near the standard of Nvidia Linux drivers then this will be amazing! It has taken too long to get the full performance out of my 5970.
Thanks for the heads-up, Ray ! Perhaps I'm no longer limited to NVidia cards and can now consider replacing my ancient GeForce 7900 GTX with a Radeon model ! As noted in Ray's article, this new driver is said to work with Ubuntu 12.10 - anybody here know if it also works with 12.04 LTS ?...
