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.

But for me - it's not a support of Linux users, it's poisoning their systems with binary blobs.

No, I won't buy Nvidia till they make their drivers free. I'm happy with Intel GPUs for now.

Thanks NV!
