I, too, would pay a premium for a truly and fully open system to which all
source was available.
But I wish to simultaneously observe that this discussion we are now
having should not even be necessary! It is downright obnoxious that
computer manufacturing has degraded to this point. Frankly, although we
hear arguments against fully open specs or drivers all the time, I think
that all of them, while possibly true in and of themselves, are even
collectively no good reason not to have open specs!
So I do think Theo is fighting the good fight. He may just be barking up
the wrong trees.
