SubjectRe: [OT] Crazy idea: Design open-source graphics chip
Hi,
Just one more crazy idea ...
Have you thought about cooperating with some kind of commercial company?
ie. SiS tried/is trying to create a 3D GPU without much success ... but
they might be able to help manufacturing GPUs/Cards even in bigger
series and as long as they dont have to invest too much in development
and get some income i think they can do it. And as far as i know a lot
of windows users would appreciate opensource graphics cores because of
the advantages of opensource drivers. I would also say that there would
be enough people interested in writing drivers for windows so your card
could be generally very well marketable. I know this is not windows
mailng list, but speaking of marketability of the core windows has the
greates market share and having it working in windows too would mean
that you are getting at production quotes big enough for reaching low
prices. So why not "abuse" windows to get us a good GPU?
