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.

So I was right, this is really an anti-GPL rant. Never mind that this is absolutely irrelevant to the topic at hand, since NVIDIA and ATI drivers are not part of the Windows NT kernel either.
