People may also want to check out the official response from AMD over at the Register. Link: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/07/amd_closes_german_os...

Part of the response: " We will continue to support the Linux kernel, and the software development work happening at the OSRC is being consolidated and will be performed at other AMD locations."

This still seems incredibly vague, though.

The radeon driver is part of the kernel, as well... And how exactly they will "consolidate and perform" the cpu-related work in other locations without the people who have been working on it is a bit of a mystery to me.

I don't understand how this is supposed to work. ARM or x86, if they want servers, they will need good Linux support. Who's going to provide that is everyone's guess...
