Linux Efforts to bring glitzy new graphics to Linux are fueling an old conflict: Does proprietary software belong in open-source Linux? The issue involves software modules called drivers, which plug into the kernel at the heart of the open-source operating system. Drivers let software communicate with hardware such as network adapters, hard drives and video cards.

as long as we have the option of removing them should we wish, binary drivers are a welcome addition.

Personally I would rather my hardware work 'out of the box' but as I said thats MY CHOICE
