VIA's Open-Source Efforts A Bluff?

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month we reported on VIA's new open-source driver efforts that was
| announced at the LF Austin Summit. This new strategy involves VIA providing
| the open-source community with NDA-free hardware specifications, code, and
| other resources -- in a similar fashion to what ATI/AMD and Intel have been
| doing for some time now. However, not everyone has been satisfied by this
| announcement and their new Linux website isn't yet exactly useful. We explore
| the VIA Linux situation in this article as well as sharing what two *
| open-source developers have to say. * * *
