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.

"Users want convenience not politics.

So yeah, 'nuff said."

Thanks. I didn't realize you knew every single user in existence and can speak for them all. Btw, freedom does not equal politics, and I never even mentioned politics. If having principles equal politics, then I would agree that many people don't have many politics. But I would still disagree with that position, and so do many kernel developers. Just because everyone else jumped off a bridge, doesn't make it right. Sometimes it's important to stick to your politics, and sometimes not. If you don't understand that, then I guess you can always say, "'nuff said," which seems silly after the next person posts.
