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.

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