This is a typical knee-jerk reaction without using your brain. If you did, you'd know that the other side dropped support for old cards three years ago!
So threats like what you just did only make you look silly.
And if your response will now be "there's the open source driver for those", well, there's one for old nv cards too - nouveau. And about the other possible response - "the other side actively supports open source"... Well, the r300 driver was initially reverse-engineered, just like nouveau is.
