    Phoronix: Open Letter For Open Drivers To NVIDIA

    For those interested in seeing official open-source support from NVIDIA or open specifications, there is an open letter for open drivers to NVIDIA at OpenTheBlob.com. With both AMD and Intel now supporting open-source X.Org drivers and releasing specifications/documentation, the community is looking for the same (if not more) from NVIDIA...

    hm not bad. just 19 sigs when i last checked, and now almost 200. seems like there are people who don't like nvidia blob, contrary to my belief.

    i'm not eligible for voting, though :]

        YAUNP (yet another useless nvidia petition)

              Well, I just ordered my first nvidia card, mostly because my laptop's ati card has been a bitch. (I'm building a desktop because my laptop seems to have developed overheating problems after about 2.5 years...)

              It's going to be a fanless 8600 gt... I'll see how it works out, I guess.

              Hence I now have reason to sign this petition.

                I don't think this can hurt, but even 100,000 end user signatures on this letter/petition still counts less than one signature from an eVGA/Powercolor/Asus/Gigabyte/MSI exec...
