 Weather Channel Sponsors ATI Radeon 8500 Drivers

Linux Hardware reports that The Weather Channel is sponsoring the development of Radeon 8500 Linux Drivers. (Linux Hardware does not have much more than this, but credit where credit is due. - Noel)

"The Weather Channel is funding Tungsten Graphics Inc. to develop an open source 3D DRI driver for the ATI Radeon 8500 graphics card. The driver will be released to the XFree86 Project around Q4 of 2002, to be distributed to the public in future versions of the XFree86 X Server."
