    I mean, its useless for anyone BUT for Nvidia GPU owners.

    It still will not be FOSS, but nobody would have to digg into proprietary driver in order to get it working.
    That would be a nice start if nVidia would allow the firmware to be redistributed (unmodified in any way of course) so it could be included in the debian firmware-linux-nonfree package for example

    Wonder if anyone has approached nVidia about that idea?

        Congrats to the noveau-team. Indeed when buying hardware, one should be able to program it, and not be locked into OS choice. Incredible lame of NVIDIA not to release specs. Peace Be With You.
