Linux Efforts to bring glitzy new graphics to Linux are fueling an old conflict: Does proprietary software belong in open-source Linux? The issue involves software modules called drivers, which plug into the kernel at the heart of the open-source operating system. Drivers let software communicate with hardware such as network adapters, hard drives and video cards.

Nobody owes you a freeking thing. Given that these tecnologies are proprietary, how is anyone supposed to provide them in an OS that by definition was created to circumvent any attempt at stop the free sharing of software code?

You folks simply do not understand the foundations of the free software movement. If you don't like what the software stands for, don't use it.
