Taipei, Taiwan, April 11th, 2005: XGI Technology, Inc. today releases its source code for Linux. To support the large and growing Linux community, XGI Technology released the source code to X.Org, XFree86.Org, and Kernel.Org for its desktop, notebook, and server products.

The Linux community is growing strong in todays technology market. To incorporate the newest Linux development to coinciding with XGIs graphics innovations, we have decided to open our source code for Linux, said Mr. Derek Lin XGIs software VP. Our goal is to support all Linux developers so that our graphics processors can run on nearly all Linux platforms; X.Org, XFree86.Org, and Kernel.Org are the vehicles to achieve this goal.

XGI supports X.Org 6.8.2 and XFree86 4.4.0. The open source supports package installation for IA32, AMD64 and EM64T, and Frame buffer device (FBDev) support for kernel version 2.4.X.

What innovations? They're just a standard graphics company following rules and guidelines set by DirectX and OpenGL.
