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.

No, but I guarantee you that speaks for the majority.

Refusing propietary drivers because they are not open source IS politics, whether you like it or not.
