AMD Ports Open-Source Linux GPU Driver To Windows

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

AMD 1

An anonymous reader writes "An AMD engineer has inadvertently revealed that their Windows Embedded graphics driver is ported from the open-source Linux driver. AMD China last year began porting the open-source Radeon Linux kernel driver to Windows Embedded Compact 7, rather than using their Windows Catalyst driver. The resulting WEC7 driver for Radeon GPUs is proprietary, but that's allowed per the MIT license that the ATI-AMD Linux driver code is provided under."

This is the only way to maintain control in this modern world.
Closed source no will no longer hide patent violations.... someone
has already tumbled to the fact the Micro$oft source could be mined
by patent troll for gobs of green stuff. The mining can be
done by bonded white room robots using tools not unlike
the stuff used to sniff out pauperism.
