"In short, Redhat makes the choice to not ship fully functioning drivers for Nvidia hardware. Since other OS vendors are able to do so it would seem the problem resides within Redhat not Nvidia."

Ah, so you're suggesting Redhat should ship operating systems they are unable to debug and properly support.

I suspect Nvidia would be perfectly happy to help RedHat debug and support the drivers, perhaps dependent upon some payment being made, and probably requiring an NDA. Apple seems to have no trouble shipping binary nvidia drivers that work (I bet they either actually have the source code to the driver available in house or at least work very closely with the nvidia developers to ensure it functions properly).

Apple is not shipping a GPL'ed kernel.
