Still no OSS R600 & R700 support in Jaunty

Although AMD released the example code for several hours already, there are still no attempts to update the according packages in Jaunty in order to finally enable the R600 and R700 to use open source acceleration techniques like EXA or or tear free Textured Video.

There is also no attemts to make Kernel Mode Setting and GEM to work on this chips, which finally leads me to the question if AMD is really that serious with Linux support. Like I see things there is no chance that things will be ready by – lets say – tomorrow. I am really considering getting a NVidia Card now. 🙁
