ATi open source drivers

If, like me, the reads happens to use Linux, and own an ATi graphics card, then surely you need not be lectured on how much said drivers suck. In my case, I own a Radeon 9600, and whilst in Winblows it works reasonably good, in Linux it just sucks big time. For instance when I tried to play Unreal 2004, it always crashed under 30 seconds! [note 1: by “crash” I mean I had to hard reboot the machine; note 2: in the few seconds the game lasted, it work rather smoothly, i.e. the graphics hardware was working fine]

Well, now it appears that ATi is going to open source some of their drivers. Let’s hope this inspire some major changes in what Linux drivers are concerned.
