      I may not like how Intel treats their user base, but I definitely do like how serious Intel funds OSS projects. My only wish for OSS projects is that mesa didn't treat gallium vs classic as a Intel vs AMD battleground. There's a ton of things Intel can benefit from on the galluim interface. And there's a Ton of work that Intel has developed on the classic interface that AMD can benefit from. I think it's time for more cooperation, and in this case mesa has to be the mediator.

        Mesa has sse version of minmax over some arrays in classic driver (vbo iirc) and there is virtually same code in gallium that could be reused with no modification and yet, I didn't see it included (I asked some time ago, no testing, no love).

        commit
        this
        that

        That code could have been reused in one more place that I found (and forgot about), but this is the first thingy that I came across. Virtually the same code.

          I will congratulate Intel if they go Gallium road. Intel stop NIH, seriously.

            I will have to point you at the fact that Cannonical barely breaks even finantially, while MS makes millions and has a stake in making their hardware work on linux.

            Now compare commits to dollars made. Cannonical contributes far above their capital should allow.

              why? their driver model come first, and they control almost anything in mesa core, the others should change not intel

                Why cannonical would contribute to the Kernel? Mostly contributions are done by HW Corporations

                  Because it is the right thing to do. You realize that Intel has completely separate OpenCL implementation from Gallium one?
                  Initially they didn't believed in Gallium, because there was no production ready driver. Now there are several ones, and ARM drivers just started to rise. In the end will be Intel vs. everybody else. Just like Canonical vs everybody else in other areas. Not cool!

                    This might sound contrary, so I apologize if this sounds strange.

                    The mesa core needs some change, and I think Intel is holding it back.
