    I have a feeling that both AMD and Intel are doing it for the same reasons.

    Google just get ready for an Multi-Billion-Dollar-$$$$$ Invasion on the Market to hurt Micro$oft for an final beating dead.

      Microsoft is porting Windows to ARM and expect SOCs running Windows 8 in a short while. This means that:
      -Intel is not friend with MS anymore, also because of Meamo;
      -Microsoft is pressured because there are so many Linux devices nowadays that AMD and Intel are starting to see that it's a new Silicon Valley aera.

        AMD has never really had a formal requirement that our open source developers be based out of an office. I've worked remotely for years now. Some people prefer an office, others prefer remote work. I only mentioned it because it was somewhat unclear from the job post.

              For those wondering about Marek, Tom, and I: Tom and I are still in school. I don't know about Marek but I seem to remember he is also a student.

                  I currently work for OSUOSL, so I am not exactly inactive in the community. I also write lots of free-time things; examine Bravo, Darklight, Lye, etc. from my personal stash for some examples.

                  Oh, and don't encourage students to drop out; it sends the wrong message, namely "I am a twit who cannot understand why people sometimes want to pursue long-term personal improvement over short-term monetary gain."

                      Can anyone please explain this to me?
                      Why would AMD want to pay people to develop two separate drivers?

                      If they don't want their driver open-source why invest in it at all and not tell people to use Catalyst?

                      If the do want to have an awesome open source driver why not just release the code of Catalyst and have one driver to maintain?

                      Isn't it just not profitable for them to develop 2 pieces of software to accomplish the same task?
