ATI has open source drivers!

I was reading an interesting post on phoronix, now everybody is talking about Nouveau drivers for Nvidia cards but it seems that all forgot that ATI cards already have open source drivers that need attention!

I am not trying to tell you to not support the Nouveau project, as those developers should have whatever they need in order to get their driver completed and ready for public consumption. However, the ATI driver must not be lost in this action. Linux users must continue to embrace the fabulous work done by these developers on the open-source ATI driver and this work must continue in order to provide R500 (and eventually, R600) support.
