I wonder if those who do would be so keen to defend the right of vendors to release binary drivers, or insist that the Linux / X11 / Fedora developers should cater to their needs, if they placed a price tag - say $50 - on those drivers? Let's face it, nothing's stopping them; it could happen tomorrow, it wouldn't be at all immoral, and as the binary driver advocates never cease to point out, the Linux user base is far too small for such a move to have an adverse effect on the company concerned.
