AMD's New Open-Source Employees
Phoronix: AMD's New Open-Source Employees
Joining John Bridgman and Alex Deucher in working on the open-source driver stack at AMD are two new, but familiar, names: Michel Dänzer and Christian König. These two Linux graphics driver developers are now officially AMD employees...
congratulations to both.
Christian König are you continuing working on Video acceleration?

Good luck to both of you!
Good news, good people!
I'm hoping to see lots of exciting work coming from these two!
Can't agree more!

Understaffed less now. Nice AMD! Slowly but surely Linux keeps on improving and I've never regretted buying AMD products. This is a rare case of products improving over time, instead of declining in worth.
Now that HTMLv5 is comming, Java is open sourced and videographics are finally starting to run respectably compared to a few years ago, the only thing remaining on my wishlist is Coreboot. That stinking BIOS needs to die, yesterday!
AMD supports coreboot on all future chipsets
well, you're in luck since AMD announced a few weeks ago that they'll support coreboot on all future chipsets!

I can't imagine AMD's embedded partners care too much about that feature. But maybe I'm wrong and AMD will actually be putting resources into it - that would be awesome.
finally a team of dedicated support. lets hope we see a difference, the radeon drivers have a long way to go to be competitive to basically all drivers, proprietary and open source.
