Like I said, instead of wasting time in an effort that does't really benefit free software at all, we should be investing those resources in actually making free software better, so more and more people choose free software over proprietary software.
When you wrote "we" in the above, I think you actually meant to write "you", unless you're actually involved in this initiative and have taken the bizarre decision to criticise it publicly. In any case, since it doesn't look as if you're giving friendly advice ("handful of extremeists [sic]"), I guess those involved might want to look a bit further for strategy tips.
That said, with the more prominent strategic initiatives in the area of making Free Software more popular stuck in the mire of "shiny, shinier, shiniest" while abandoning basic functionality and reliability, they might be looking for some time. Meanwhile, beyond the narrow experience of a bunch of desktop users whose "Nvidia is working fine now", proprietary hardware remains a continuous and real problem.
