Re: Where shall we start?
Why would you want a graphics car with open source libraries, given that the open source drivers mostly perform like donkey balls compared to the proprietary drivers?
What do open source graphics cards libraries have to do with 99% of development work, unless developing for graphics cards?
One of the problems with Linux is that people like yourself think you speak for all and every other Linux user. All the developers I know who use Linux are doing stuff using Eclipse. They really don't care about the open source drivers. It's meaningless to them. It's not even a "nice to have", it's meaningless.
You can moan all you like, but the 1% desktop share, of thereabouts, that Linux has pretty much says it all.
Nor will having open source libraries necessarily make them better. That partly explains why the open source drivers offer fewer features and worse performance than the closed ones.
