        "One Of Imagination's Only Mesa Developers Has Jumped Ship To Intel"

        If they had only one, writing "one of" and using the plural "developers" is confusing.
        Just drop that and go singular, for example

        It's a bit mixy as it's hard to ensure for certainty if he's Imagination's only Mesa developer or not, since last year were the 2 or 3 commits from another person or two. And it's not clear if Imagination has since hired anyone else.

          Yeah I retracted that post soon after posting as I actually noticed too late that you mentioned other possible ones. nevermind, nevermind.

            This makes me lol because I imagine you spend significant time in a code editor and syntax correctness including every detail just becomes so important.

            I can relate to that.

              "Intel continues being one of the largest -- in fact, most likely the largest -- employer of Linux open-source graphics driver developers and more broadly Linux hardware driver / kernel contributors for that matter."

              And intel developers do not test their code with non intel hardware and do not care about bug reports. That is why Asus motherboard and Ryzen 5 1600 owners need the following hacks:

                Imagination had a developer card that could run Unreal engine 4 with ray tracing. I was hoping Imagination would get back in the pc market
                I also heard they got bought by some company in china.

                  It seems that everyone's going to Intel to work these days. Probably to work on Meltdown 2.0. Since it was discovered, the FBI must be pushing Intel really hard for a replacement.
