Last time I checked AMD and SiS were still for-profit corporations. And
at times even they leave money on the table since they don't always
see the forest for the trees.
Why ask about accelerated 3D/X11/OpenGL drivers for the SiS761GX?
Because it's the missing piece of a puzzle to unlock millions in sales.
LinuxBIOS for some here is just a hobby. For others it is business.
