    Drivers need to work on user's systems, regardless of their license. I hope both AMD and NVidia will support Wayland if it establishes itself in due time.

    Why would somebody try to learn the intricacies of GPU driver programming just to get his $300 card to work right?

    You could learn how and learn how to want to do? or is it easier to whinge and use a blob?

    Code doesn't write itself. And in the AMD case they help a lot (employ 4 or 5 FOSS hackers) even if they are not obliged to (the documentation is out there). They write most of the code so in many ways its "their code" that they give to everyone for free.

Or change at will.
    This!

    The current open source drivers are useless and until this changes I'll stick with the binary blobs.
