ATI readies big Linux driver push

ATI is finally getting serious about their Linux drivers, according to a report by The Inquirer. It is my hope that this is just the beginning of “big-hardware’s” change of heart. With any luck, this will continue as a trend as more and more hardware companies get onboard by making sure that drivers are available to Linux users.

ATI IS here in Cyprus to outline its recently announced X700 and Catalyst drivers.

Terry Makedon, a senior product manager, largely talked about those, but he did say the firm is readying a major push in the next few weeks to outline its plans for Linux driver support.

He said that ATI has three main goals for Linux. He said that ATI supports Linux which represents around four per cent of the market, and that the firm’s Linux efforts are proportional to the market.
