Any of us who have to support the random hardware thrown at us know that broad hardware
coverage is an invaluable asset to us. Worrying about whether eight or nine people working
towards FOSS Nvidia compatibility is more of a gift than we should give to NVidia is
pointless. They could hire 8 or 9 people of the same competence level in a heartbeat, give
them full access to the specs, and have a superior driver out in no time... without ever
really caring about FOSS users other than as just another source of revenue.
