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.

Choose your hardware accordingly : x86 ! And stop exotic stuff, or then choose compatible video card ! Why focusing on nVidia so much ?

Thanks for missing the point, it was fun playing.
If you have non x86 or "exotic" stuff then the nVidia binary drivers does not work, is not good enough and you would be helped by (preferably) docs or code.
