ATI, AMD, and free drivers

ATI, AMD, and free drivers

Will AMD, which has cultivated a strong relationship with the Linux community, work with ATI to release open source drivers - including supporting suspend/resume on laptops?

It would indeed be applaudable if they actually released free drivers, as it does seem to be more efficient and feature-complete than the current radeon DRI (impressive as it is, considering the circumstances). While pushing for that, one still shouldn't forget to ask for at least the basic decency of making their specs available. It would be a significant win, if not a complete coup.
