How long, I wonder, before graphics chipset vendors stop bothering with Linux drivers for their chipsets.

Is such a small market share worth pursuing? Or is it worth it solely for the Linux-using opinion-former mindshare?

Linux is of course winning in the server marketplace but servers don't need graphics chipsets, other than in very basic terms. Then again, perhaps Linux driver development for GPUs/APUs used for parallel processing acceleration in servers makes ancillary development of Linux drivers for graphics-focussed chipsets relatively low cost. The Linux server saves the few remaining Linux desktop users, perhaps. Wink | ;-)
