3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

ATI released their specs to help 'open-source-freaks' to stop moaning constantly... I cannot understand : people needs binary drivers to run their computer, not a source code in text file format that won't help much displaying anything on screen :/
