Phoronix: Red Hat Is Hiring To Work On Open-Source GPU Drivers
Those wishing to work for one of the best open-source companies while focusing on improving open-source Linux graphics drivers, Red Hat has an opening...
I'm 99% sure this is about nouveau - it's still severely lacking (reclocking/fan management).
sponsoring hostile manufacturers is a shame

Of course, I know that's not how the world works, but I'll try to buy second hand Nvidia hardware to avoid them getting a sale.
Regarding the article. I think this is about both vendors. If it's only about Nouveau, I'll get mad.
I wonder if Red Hat is trying to use its bulk to try to get Nvidia to open up.

deal with it.

Have a nice day, kid.
You can count Ben Skeggs and Rob Clark too, for the pure graphics side.
