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.

Exactly, linux is about choice, you choose to use proprietary software or not.

People with an absolute believe that proprietary is evil should turn off their pc right now because i'm sure their processor is a proprietary piece of hardware and so is about every other component of their pc.

They should build their own stuff and make the blueprints of their work open source.

Well goodby proprietary haters, see you in about three hundred years when you finished your 1Mhz pc.
