All of which would be fine and dandy if graphics hardware manufacturers
provided the specs necessary to create Open Source drivers.  As things
stand, we seem to be headed for the day when the type of basic desktop
functionality we take for granted today will absolutely require the use
of binary drivers from ATI or nVIDIA.  I don't understand why people who
claim to care about software freedom seem to working to create this

Is it 5:00 yet?
