>> So...why arent these drivers open source? I mean we dont buy the nvnet or graphics driver from nVidia, it's free. nVidia wont loose any income on opensourcing these drivers. They will most likely be developed faster if they are GPLd and integrated into the kernel, not to mention the reduced hassle with gettting it all to work.
Agreed. For me lack of open source drivers for the motherboard (especially the NIC, now that the AGP issue is solved) is a showstopper for buying a nforce2 based board.
This better be solved soon, cause KT600 is coming out soon and is not much worse.
