Where's the documentation?

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 85.176.192.79] on September 06, 2007 11:18 PM
I've asked them both, ATI and AMD, a few times to release documentation...

and now they talk about free drivers... WTF?!

What's the problem handing out the DOCUMENTATION for the HARDWARE?

I know times where those famous vendors provided datasheets even with the

normal packages. The recent behaviour is definetly cutting the possible

audience to end users only... which is unwise from an evolutional view to

what's happening in the software world (free and commercial).



It's about HARDWARE SPECS! AMD, provide them, we - the users and

developers - want evolution... and like to use your products for it.

The logical outcome after time is clear: more sold units because of freedom

for customers.



Think about it.
