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.

you do ofcourse realize that the drivers which breaks on new kernels are the closed ones... are you perhaps confused? this is exactly the type of thing which ALSO happens with nvidia, but NOT the free drivers..

Don't move of kernel then... The nVidia proprietary drivers is a known issue for quite a long time now, why the Hell such intelligent people like you are STILL using these hardware while it is known to cause trouble ? Are you all masochists ?
