    I once thought that ARM itself would be most open to open source. I could not have been more wrong (according to my information, mostly thanks to my good friend Jem). IMG is already better with...

    Yes, and no. His statement is by and large correct. The kernel side is always licensed under the GPLv2, as such is the license of the kernel. It is indeed left up to the licensees, but the licensees...

    Seems like a lot of the actual content of the blog post was blatantly overlooked.

    The most obvious is the clear call to stop people from spreading useless proprietary code: it only achieves the...

    One of the reasons as to why ATI was such a big problem for AMD back when they bought it, was the fact that the bad graphics driver situation reflected pretty badly on AMDs server business. AMD had a...

    The noise and politics in open source are just much more boundless than in the corporate world, and at the end of the day, even less technical advancement is achieved for the same effort.

    That will never happen.

    Nobody ever hires the disruptive, thorn-in-their-side trailblazer, as someone like that bruises too many egos and ruins too many political games. Cfr: VIA Technologies,...

    I think you mean lima driver developer. And you are welcome as yes, it is that convoluted.

    But! This is just the isa, and they are doing this to finally get some traction for Rogue on OpenCL and...

    FOSDEM2014 had 6 livestreams, and the Graphics DevRoom stream was apparently pretty stable.

    You are welcome. Without RadeonHD, ATI would've buried any open source driver in the summer of 2007. It's only after the thing came out of the box that they changed tactics and teamed with redhat and...

    ... Comes this: "AMD has the option to replace this basic shader support with its own proprietary module to provide extra optimizations that may be required in certain enterprise level use cases....

    Our primary goal with the radeonhd driver was to provide enterprise level support: maybe not all the features enabled, but solid (read: you get a working display every time), long term support. This...

    rv6xx is everything but the r600: the HD2900, which upon announcement supposedly had uvd, but two days later this was correct. Apparently that block was broken on r600. So you're talking hd2400,...
