    In case of the first, could you ask then to open source it?

    In case of the second, what do you think nVidia's "fell of ownership" is for the microcode?

    Could there be innovative things going on in there, so they don't want AMD to learn from them?

    Or is microcode so specific to the card, and non related to performance, that they wouldn't care if it got distributed?

    Strange, I thought they were going to opensource their driver...
    Hmmm on the other hand that would be some kind of sabotage for Nouveau and they promised they won't hinder their efforts... Pity, Nouveau deprives us an opensource driver from NVidia...

    So far so good

    It would be very useful, if they could comment on if the microcode contains IP or patents.

    this bodes well for microcodes of open source toads, but alas still remains one proprietary node adobe!
