Hopefully as Linux continues to gain legitimacy, such backward thinking will begin to subside, especially as more and more companies open-source their products.
But don't be too quick to think that it's just backwards I'm-afraid-of-OSS-and-losing-my-IP. For all we know, NVIDIA may have entered into contracts or NDAs to get the drivers for this stuff written. So the lack of source does not mean "I hate OSS."
Either way, does the driver work?
