Well it is a silly thing to hate software that fixes the video card
you get when you buy it. I paid a few bucks for the Video card and it
didn't work well at all in Linux. Then I was told about the software and
I yum installed it and now my tiny new computer looks as good as the
monster it replaces. If you think you MUST have the source code for all
things in a computer your not right.
