No other vendor has choose to support Linux as a primary driver platform.
You mean like how Intel supports all their graphics chipsets before they even get released to the public, and releases actual *documentation* for their chipsets, not just drivers? Not to mention driving much of the innovation in the X Window System.

How is that a fail? Intel does support of their chipset, but the graphics chip you linked to is done by Imagination Technologies. Intel has little say on whether Imagination Technologies release their drivers, although they have been trying to pressure them. (I used to work for Imagination Technologies)

Intel's failure is primarily in branding. I used to be able to point to Intel as the brand you can trust and buy to be working out of the box with free and open source drivers in all Linux distributions. That's not the case anymore.
