You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:
Dear Dan Warren, I believe this pledge does give Intel just as good a deal as "the big boys". The pledge specifically says:
“this pledge does not affect buying decisions for products with open source 3D graphics drivers prior to the pledge”
This means that someone who takes the pledge can still freely buy an Intel graphics card with Open Source drivers whatever ATI or nVidia do.
The goal of this pledge is to financially motivate manufacturers who have not yet Open Sourced their drivers and not penalize the ones who already have (Intel only as of today). I have worded this pledge as carefully as possible and I think it works as intended. I hope you will understand that it is impossible to edit the text of a pledge that has already been signed.Marcus Hewat, 12 years ago.
