3D News, GL, DirectX Yesterday, we reported on the statement several kernel developers had signed that urged hardware manufacturers to open up their Linux modules and drivers. "We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable," the statement read. Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

Oh guess what. Binary code is compiled source code ^^
So actually users take advantage of a quality source code something that nvidia simple can not provide ;)
The easy use of their drivers are nothing more than years of winnings from linux users (u prbbly werent around old times) and of course package managers that make the more than the half job done.
