There is a lot of industries/groups/people out there, using gnu/linux + binary drivers.
- HTPC (home theater PC)
- HPC (High performance computing)
- film/animation (ie: Disney, Pixar, DreamWorks, etc)
- mobile/tablet market
- automotive industry
- other industrial applications
- scientific/academic research
- game development
...and so on and so on...
