Hey, we Open-source/Free software advocates have got to take any good news we can get relating to a vendor opening up specifications to a previously-proprietary hardware device (generally speaking). Besides, who doesn't suppose the Community can/will code a graphics driver that might even be better than ATI's in-house version? (Not meant to impugn the expertise of ATI's engineering team.)
But, more importantly, this sets a precedent for other hardware manufacturers to follow, in general. Kudos to ATI.
