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.

WHY must they ALL be the same!

Yea! I mean.. why don't some of these Linux distributions just use a different kernel! The fact that they all use Linux just shows how little they know about making a Linux distro!

:p
