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.

I don't care about 'the foundations of the <insert poetry here> movement'. I want the best linux experience out of the box. Period. If this can be achieved by using proprietary software (like PC-BSD seems to do), then just do it! You still live in a dream world. Wake up! Linux is not a hacker's OS anymore and the end user doesn't care about the opensource poetry...
