It`s not only NVIDIA with Linux problems that cause upstream developers to publicly bash companies (i.e. Linus Torvalds calling NVIDIA the worst company ever), but AMD has come under scrutiny too. The developers of the popular cross-platform XBMC multimedia project shared a little story about enthusiasm, hope, and disappointment. In this guest posting by Peter Frhberger on Phoronix, XvBA is what is principally talked about, which is AMD`s lead choice for video acceleration when using their proprietary Catalyst driver. Unfortunately the XBMC developers aren`t too happy about the state of video acceleration using AMD`s Catalyst driver for Radeon graphics hardware, hence why they have reached out to Phoronix with this rather lengthy public message. Whether AMD even cares about Linux users and when XvBA will support missing functionality are among their open questions for AMD."
