ATi is definately big enough to get what they want, they just clearly dont recognize it, and are putting themselves in this position. Effectively believing that they cant do anything about it. It's bullshit, but hey what can you do right? I mean all I'm asking for is a DRM free linux. Thas it. ATi can get rid if DRM completely if they wanted to, and are probably the only ones who could actually do it. But they wont becouse they are afraid and weak.
As long as I can have a DRM free linux I'll be perfectly happy. I'll remain outspoken about DRM throughout my life, but I'll be happy as long as I dont have to deal with it personally. The first time I try to play back some content that I bought and it tells me that I cant becouse DRM dictating what OS I can use and what player I can use, and what hardware I can use, I'm going to freak.
