Maybe this will put some pressure on AMD to give a little respect to the linux community.

Makes sense. They already had a great start working with the apple ‘nix OS. Might as well keep it going and expand.

Actually, I'm quite surprised that the number is this low, given that Intel has made a commitment to Android, and one of the problem areas they've identified (more than once) is that Android is poorly optimized to take advantage of Linux' native multicore capabilities.

The Google/Intel paln to optimize 'droid for x86 so far doesn't seem to have made much headway, or they wouldn't still be complaining.

One place they could quickly add some zip to the phenomenology of their dual-core dual-graphics Android boxes is by tuning graphics and performance for their GPU/CPU graphics subsets in the drivers and kernel, which sits above 'droid.

Bottom line: I think this is more about mobile than it is about desktop Linux, although it will benefit there as well.

>> This work obviously is prior to announcing any hardware and stuff they can’t talk about yet

Maybe going after NVidia with open source drivers.
