looks like amd getting more serous for linux.

small copypaste news page from start:

It looks like thanks to AMD's increasing sales and continuing successes in the enterprise space with more HPC wins and the like, AMD is hiring more Linux engineers. AMD currently has several interesting job openings on the Linux front.

While AMD has been delivering reliable Linux support with their recent launches, there is room for improvement in areas like more timely compiler support for new processors, better alignment of their new hardware enablement for getting the code not only upstreamed but into distributions for launch-day, and similar areas. Based on recent job postings, it looks like AMD is working to make such strides.

AMD has always been on par with intel in the tech race... They also own ATI, so in addition to to having better support for their CPU, the GPU will experience gains as well. This is definitely a WIN for ATI fans out there.
Windows assumes the user is an idiot... Linux DEMANDS Proof!

AMD is top notch now on Linux out-of-the-box even now as it stands for hardware support. Great to see even more involvement from them in the future!
