Parent article: Linux in a binary world... a doomsday scenario
Linux + binary drivers == "Open"Solaris situation (i.e. what I like to call half-source, or even better half-arsed-source :-).
Don't go there, don't do it, don't even think about it. It's a trap.
Keep drivers in source form (don't listen to Sun-like binary talk - they have a different agenda). Make people aware things will and should break if they don't release the source of their drivers. Tell NVidias and ATIs of this world that what they are doing is NOT OK.
