I've been reading blogs and articles talking about how M$ and the fruit company are supporting Implementing support for OpenCL API that will use the GPU to allow computers to handle more tasks and run faster. does ubuntu or any other linux distro have plans to incorporate opencl in upcoming releases? does ubuntu 9.04 already support this?

if they still haven't there's an old request on ubuntu brainstorm. if you think this is important please click on the link and vote for it.(link below)

This would be up to the Linux kernel developers.

However, if Canonical Ltd. (the company in charge of Ubuntu) assigned a few people to help out with the job, that would reflect very well on Ubuntu, so I'm in favor of the idea.
