Re: "It will ensure proprietary stuff will slowly become more and more behind"
Exactly, my upvote.
I agree with the kernel developers: if you can get nVidia to agree, with lawyered-up documentation, then go for it.
But to other people, I'm sorry that you think that a manufacturer has the fundamental requirement to open their proprietary hardware, and any associated software drivers, to the FOSS system.
As LDS so logically notes, and real life conditions absolutely proves, the only thing the Linux community attitude of "It'll be open source or nothing!" is... nothing. Linux will continue to stagnant on the desktop because too many Linuxheads only want social purity rather than practical solutions.
Companies make products to sell at profits, but they are then supposed to grant free and open access to anyone and everyone, just because? It's called "proprietary" for a reason: because it was created by one company for their own profitable benefit. If something is "proprietary" as well as "successful" then their plan worked! Asking them to open up any part of their proprietary system after spending monies on development therefore makes it... not proprietary, because now they no longer have hold on future developments and usage. So you're asking them to give away the baby with the bath water, just because it's you asking.
Year of the Linux Desktop will only happen *when* you realize that the desktop is the land of decades-old literat proprietary solutions and it's up to YOU, as the minority interest trying to push into the center of it, to work with THEM, not the other way around. You'll think otherwise, downvote me, but users have voted by the billions yet you'll live in denial.
(Edit: oh look, a downvote already! Living in denial, that everyone will want FOSS *even the for-profit companies*, still lives in Linux lover's heads.
