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.

If you choosed hardware that was not made for GNU/Linux , you only have yourself to blame , there is no one stopping you or the vendor from making proprietary driver that connect to GNU/Linux , dont wait for it from the GPL camp ask or pay your vendor or proprietary developper for them.
