Re: Aliquis and open source drivers.

No, that is wrong. First, closed source XFree86 drivers generally suck, are a bitch to install and cannot respond fast enough to the quick development step of the rest of the software and adapt to the wide variety of kernel/X server version that user may possibly run.

When doing user support on debian-user-french, the most X related questions are from people who have trouble getting the nvidia drivers to work, and rarely with the real X stuff.

Finally, If people clamor for drivers from ATI or NVidia, it is only because those refuse to give out the specs for their boards to open source developers.
