"Because they believe that there should be no proprietary binary drivers in use with linux."

Artificially creating barriers to entry is just great for gaining credibility among hardware vendors and potential customers. That is if gaining means losing.

Sun will always have the advantage of actually giving people what they want. The hard-line Free Software folks will end up being their own downfall, because telling other people how to live their lives just pisses them off.
