I was curious on why Matrox had no [Amiga] press release on their site. So I mailed and asked them. After some exchange I got an answer. [Read more below]
[start of mail]

Hello Henrick

First of all, I apologize that you've been waiting for an email response and we haven't gotten back to you sooner. It was a case of a minor mix up in communication, sorry about that.

We don't have anything on our web site regarding the partnership between Amiga and Matrox because we usually don't formally announce our third party partnerships until the product is launched and we can be specific on how we've worked together. Were pleased about working with Amiga in its development of a new product and look forward to its successful launch. Once this happens we will also promote a joint press release on our web site.

I believe this email more or less echoes what Sarah Kelly has already told you, but unfortunately there is really no additional information that I can provide you with.

Kind Regards,

Darlene

[end of mail]

Some short notes... If any I want to see the letter i first recieved from Sarah Kelly you can mail me. There's nothin interesting in it though. Darlene spelled my first name wrong... =/

Keep the faith!

The Matrox series of boards are really quite easy to develop for (mostly because its well documented) as evident by the fact the very first glx supported card in Linux was probably the 3DFX board, but realisticly the Matrox board.

Where do you get this information from?
The first supported video board under XFree86 was the S3 with 683 687
and 771 chipsets being the very first: i remember buying a Number9 FX
Motion 771 for exatly that reason. After that Cirrus logic followed,
then Video7 and Tseng Labs.

If someone said that microsoft invented graphic interfaces or
multitasking, you'd probably be jumping to his throat... Well, this
is more or less the same: Matrox DID not open its hardware
specifications until very late (with the release of the G100 and
G200) and did NOT cooperate with the XFree86 people until quite recently,
more or less with the raise of the linux hype.
