Intel making open-source graphics moves

Intel is expected this week to reveal new details on work involving open-source graphics drivers, according to sources familiar with the situation. Intel has mentioned graphics driver work but has been cagey about details. However, the move could alter the landscape for those using the Linux operating system.
