| as NVIDIA's OpenCL driver launch for Windows -- they 
| have made their OpenCL support publicly available.

| phone interview. "My intent is to point out the problems Nvidia has been

| certainly one of the few companies sticking to a binary-only strategy."
| Binary-only means the drivers are essentially closed.
