Why they don't open their complete driver sources? Is not a proprietary software or os, it's just a driver. If their brains aren't smart enough to make their hardware properly work just release the drivers' sources the community does it their own without reverse engendering the official driver. It's not a strategic object, it's not kinda atom launcher specifications it's just a video card driver
And having the code wouldn't help nouveau devs very much, because the nvidia driver is a big giant mess of application and game specific micro-optimizations and other assorted micro-optimizations, making it impenetrable. Saying "it's just a video card driver" is some serious underestimating of how complex today's GPUs and their drivers are.
Also this appeal to the almighty community that will suddenly appear once code and/or docs get released doesn't work nowadays anymore. For example, look at how incomplete the Ironlake driver is (the pre-gen6 section at the bottom): http://wiki.freedesktop.org/dri/I965Todo/. And that's despite a fully open source driver and full docs being available.
I know EGL support was added to 64-bit Linux. Does that mean that EGL is now used by default or am I misunderstanding how it works?
On my case this drivers works good with wine
support of vdpau feature set E is interesting
Feature Set E
Similar to feature set D but added support for decoding H.264 with a resolution of up to 4096 × 4096 and MPEG-1/MPEG-2 with a resolution of up to 4080 × 4080 pixels. GPUs with VDPAU feature set E support an enhanced error concealment mode which provides more robust error handling when decoding corrupted video streams.
