    Definitely great news. Normally, I don't care that much about drivers being open-source, but this is one of those times where I think it matters and is very beneficial. This is the kind of thing that might make ARM platforms explode in popularity.

        I wish. I've heavily considered getting many of the Tegra/Jetson platforms, if only they weren't so expensive.
        Also, my gaming PC is all-AMD, and my laptop is all-Intel.

        My only PC with Nvidia hardware is a hackintosh with a GT 630.

          Not only that. Those amlogic devices are *new* SoC's that use *old* MALI's.
          If this works out well, we might actually be able to have open source gles drivers on the galaxy s2. (Ok, actually that's a different project, because that's the rebooted lima driver).
          But we still buy loads of exynos 5422's. If panfrost works on that I would be very happy on my desktop. (and all PoS systems I manage).
