Linux: Free Software Friendly Graphics Card

Timothy Miller started a discussion on the lkml regarding whether or not it would be viable for a company to release a completely open video card. He explains, "in short, what I have been proposing to my superiors is the development of a graphics card specifically for open source systems. This means full disclosure on all register interfaces so that no one has to deal with anything closed source (BIOS included). The goal here is to produce a graphics card which is a Free Software geek's dream in terms of openness".
