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.

Of course, the development has been slow because they've had to reverse engineer everything and then reinvent the wheel. Still, they work great.

No, no, you could get R100 and R200 specifications if you did ask. I have the full specifications and Driver Development Kit for those cards, including 3D. I even received them without signing an NDA, allthough they said in clear terms the specs were to be kept confidential.
