from just now:
billybob2 writes "VIA has released a 113,800 line open source graphics
driver with full mode-setting support for CRT, LCD, and DVI devices
along with 2D, X-Video, and cursor acceleration. Harald Welte, VIA's
open source representative, states that the next step is to add 3D
(see preview), TV-out, and hardware codec support while integrating
this work with existing open source projects. VIA has pre-installed
Linux on a significant portion of the company's latest products,
including the EVEREX gPC2, 15.4" gBook, and CloudBook. It has also
helped port the open source CoreBoot BIOS (previously LinuxBIOS) to
several of its motherboards." VIA seems to be making good on the
promise of its open source initiative announced last April.

Neat stuff.
