Nvidia, which delivers probably the most prominent closed-source Linux driver, has reiterated its position concerning this matter.

Do some people stil improves 3Dfx drivers or Kyro drivers ? I bet no, because these hardware are now out of date for quite a long time. *IF* nVidia cames bankrupt (I doubt, Intel will buy them when they'll be cheaper) then other video cards will replace their aging harware, and the supposed driver support will become a non-issue...
