Exclamation Another plea for open source nforce drivers

Hi,

I know I'm not the 1st, but I have to add that nVidia lost a sale, because I think that closed-source kernel drivers are A Bad Thing, since if the company decides to stop maintaining the code, users are SOL, and must buy new motherboards/RAM and go through the ardorous task of replacing the old board, if they want new linux kernels.

Note that I am happy with the nvidia xfree driver. It makes my Riva TNT2 more than fast enough for me. If nvidia decides to stop maintaining it, I can go buy a new video card and have it running in 15 minutes.
