ATI to Open Source Drivers August 10, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Opinions, Tech News.
ATI has said they are strongly considering Open Sourcing the ATI drivers. Tom Yager, the author of the article, seems to think that if ATI had Open Source drivers it might effect a buyin decision or two.
My Thoughts; I doubt it will affect any significant buying decisions. Only the Linux and FreeBSD people who actually care about Licensing will bother worrying about the device driver license. People will want what works and that takes precedent over some moral crusade.
