Hopefully the graphics documentation is in the pipeline, and that Harald Welte will be able to bring together the OpenChrome and Unichrome developers to work on a single codebase.
That was my take on this event. While the info in the chipset docs is going to be useful in the long-haul sense of the term- it's not fixing one of the mainline problems Linux users face with the use of their products. If you've got one of their IGP's, you're stuck with twitchy stuff at best- and no way for someone other than VIA right at the moment to properly fix it. Not a good thing, really. I divested myself of pretty much all my VIA devices because of issues with the display, etc.
I really do like the release of the useful PadLock info. That helps. Now, if only they could fix their display driver story...
My Via system is just a file server, so it's already supported well enough for my needs. But the idea of an Isiah-based netbook is appealing, so I'm more than happy to see them dish out some documentation.
