In reply to: Paying nVidia
Parent article: LCA: The state of the Nouveau project
An nVidia executive said some time ago that the reason they didn't open the code was that open source developers are not smart enough for something as complex as a 3D graphics driver, which I found a bit insulting. So if a million dollars was to be gathered, I'd rather give it to Dave Airlie and the Nouveau folks than nVidia itself — I already gave nVidia some money for its hardware and it refused to give me the code (not that I actually asked, but ...); so let's support the open source supposedly-not-smart-enough guys this time and see how dumb they turn out to be (or not).
