    You're right there. Thankfully this isn't completely universal but not uncommon.

    The guys that get paid mightn't have that perspective though.

    I'd probably agree with their position on that one. I don't think the blobs deserve to be the default choices given the problems that could create but I don't think the xorg guys should be flippant with respect to the blobs place in the Linux world. But of course, ultimately it's their choice to do what suits them however wise or unwise those choices may be.

    If you consider this I'm quite surprised then they are keeping some code in for nvidia blob sake... Let's face it if it was out nvidia would just had to adjust to it sooner or latter.
    Surprising but pleasingly so.
