     ATI wants to improve compatibility with Linux

    Although aware that Linux users are a minority (Linux represent 1.3% of OS installed) and that only a few gamers are using Linux, ATI has decided to increase the compatibility with this support (NVIDIA already made some serious progress on that subject). During the past 6 months, the Canadian manufacturer would have increase by 300% the number of people working on Linux drivers (backbiters will probably say they are four now). They have installed a new test procedure and are planning to release a new version every two months.


    Innovation to come in the next six months will be:

    - compatibility for all PCI Express products
    - compatibility with AMD/Intel 64 bits
    - an easy to use installer
    - several innovations for the control panel
    - a better monitor management
    - compatibility with the next GPU generations

    We will see in a couple of months if they will keep their promises…
