'Unsupported and bitter' Open Source Editorial

Posted on Friday, February 24 2006 @ 07:10:59 CET by

DriverHeaven just posted an open source editorial concerning ATi’s non-existent support of Linux. Panagiotis “Kombatant” Vagiakos details with some passion his frustration with ATi’s current (lack of) Linux driver support. Here is a quote for you:

"ATI's stance in the whole subject reminds me of the whole SLI debate when it was re-introduced by nVidia, also known as burying your head in the sand. At first, ATI tried to downplay its importance, telling people left and right that it is practically useless, that they don't believe it will catch on, or that it will interest/benefit consumers. Do you know what happened after one year? - Crossfire. ATI saw the market, saw nVidia walking away with an easy victory, regrouped, and presented an alternative. Well ATI, guess who's walking away with an easy victory in the Linux front for the past years. Guess which company is preferred by people who are interested in running Linux, not only as their main operating system mind you, but even as a casual alternative in a dual-boot system."
