    Just wanted to add that article title suggests that some revolutionary changes might be ongoing while after reading the quote it just looks like they are refactoring, and not necessarily the whole driver, might be just the part that was mentioned.
    Yes, I'll have to agree with you there, but hopefully there'll be more news later to clear things up. Otherwise, it's just an nvidia dev saying "working to make the driver better" which really shouldn't be news to anyone.

      Not even close.

        It's called nouveau
        I, for one, would be happier if "the existing infrastructure" could catch up to Nvidia. I would autoejaculate if ATI got onboard the VDPAU train instead of saying, "NIH (Not Invented Here), so here's our crappy Xvba implementation."
        And for intel users, there should be massive work on a gallium driver, though I'm not seeing a whole lot of commits there...
        Santa, where are you?!
