If we can get NVIDIA release their drivers open-source, kernel hackers will quickly fix many bugs and boost their performance, also possibly simplifying installation process or converting the driver architecture to standard DRI.

Here's the petition:

Please, stop being silly. No amount of petitions will change the fact that NVIDIA cannot open-source their drivers even if they wanted to, because in order to create them, a lot of technology (S3TC texture compression, for example) had to be licensed from 3rd-parties.
