Open Source?

But are the drivers open source? They make drivers for their desktop and laptop GPU's but they're all closed source. If you don't trust them, your only alternative is to use the non-proprietary driver from the community, with shaky 3D support and loss of certain features.

If they really want to be accepted by the Linux community, they should go the whole-hog and invite community participation in producing open source drivers.
