nvidia really should get their act together.

Why? I am already grateful that they bother to support a tiny market mostly buying low-end cards. NVidia won't open-source their driver because of licence restrictions (since they have licenced technology/code/trade secrets). Remember the Linux driver share about 85% of the code with the Windows driver. Why aren't they releasing the specs? That is the real question.

VIA and XGI has nothing to lose by opening their drivers. Their market share can only go up.
