+ - AMD and Novell release open source Radeon driver->

canatella writes: "phoronix.com is running this story:

"Not only is AMD providing the open-source community with their ATI GPU specifications, but they have also been partnering with Novell on the development of a new open-source display driver. We've been telling you about AMD's open-source work all month, and today the new driver is finally available for download. It is still very much a work in progress and isn't much further along than the open-source R500 Avivo driver. However, this new driver does support the Radeon HD 2000 (R600) family."


The new driver is hosted at FreeDesktop.org."

The whole interview has some other interesting bits, like de Icazas thoughts on an open sourced java and infos about upcomping versions of Mono."
