"" The experience of this driver has actually driven me to use Windows again to get certain
done after around ten years of Linux as my sole working platform.
I suspect there is simply not enough manpower in the arena of the video drivers on Linux. ""
Nevertheless i still use Linux... try the proprietary offerings... I've being "crying to the
winds" in this forum for more than half a decade!!...
In my opinion its not manpower its the *will* and a workable method and organization(
concentrated efforts, because reverse engineering would be still in the menu ) to obviate the
lack of a long in time stable API or ABI of the driver model.
Worst that can happen its the various distros driving different implementations as a marketing
differentiation point!... akin to our favorite "Bill" selling *rope*, openly and without
shame, at the entrances of RH, Novell, Canonical... LF... headquarters ( rope for people to
hang themselfs )...
( for crying out loud why isn't DKMS official tree code ?... or am i being out for too long
If the *will* is there, than it only misses a good development method and organization for it
to take off good... because the hardware manufactores wont do it "really" for free for OSS( no
matter what they claim)... for them is just a matter of dumping development, maintenance and
support costs to the community.
If the *will* is there and the method and organization, then 'we' can talk about Linux desktop
really taking off and spreading like wild fire, otherwise, we better talk about santa claus!
