When, oh when will we finally be able to get high quality hardware combined with high quality open source video drivers?

Just give more time for OS developers because when AMD opened specs from their 3D cards, it started few nice projects, it just takes little time to get powerfull Open Source drivers for ATI cards. But it's so much faster now when AMD really gave specs.


KDE is made for users by users....
What can you give back to others?

Intel GMA X3000/X3100 combined with the drivers that Gallium3D are currently working on... Good things lie ahead! ;)

 Software Freedom?

 
 by soulrebel on: Jan 15 2008
 
Score 50%

This pole frightens me. How do you people think, you can make a vendor release documentation/free drivers, if you already buy their hardware that comes with non-free drivers?

Nothing is ever going to change if people don't take responsibility for themselves.

But than again, what can you expect if the person offering the pole doesn't even name a single company that develops free drivers and uses the castrated term of "open source" to describe free software.

 Optimistic results

This results are purely optimistic. Users have chosen products from company which has currently the best support for graphics under Linux. Yes, best: support, functionality, features, speed and stability.

This is important and that where optimism could be found.

Idealism is good for idealists, but event the greates idea won't accelerate 3D games properly.

Not every KDE user is on Linux. I am on FreeBSD. There is no AMD vendor driver for FreeBSD. The NVidia vendor driver for FreeBSD is buggy and frequently out of date.

 Open AND Closed

 
 by smileaf on: Jan 17 2008
 
Score 50%

I run a dual monitor display.
Both are nVidia Cards however one is really old and not supported by the closed source one. I could use a older version, but then my newer card isn't support. So I use the open source one for my secondary display (older card) and the closed source one for my primary (newer card).

I use the Ati/radeon open drivers, I can't use Beryl but they've proven to be more stable than the fgrlx drivers.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
