They can't support Optimus without DMA-BUF, and currently DMA-BUF is only available to GPL modules. Hopefully this will change.The other thing is, X isn't capable of properly supporting it. It's only in the last few days that patches have started to appear, that will give X the needed surgery to support Optimus.

Finally, what kind of scam are you talking about? People's ability to over-dramatize is really mind-boggling sometimes.
