I'm OK with binary drivers...But only if its used as a temporary solution. In the long term, I still want to use an open-source one. (So I'm waiting for the 3D acceleration part of the open driver for Nvidia cards.)
What do you expect? Canonical is a commercial company, is it not?
But I do agree with your point. It sends the wrong message to the first time Linux user.
If not the concept of open-source, there wouldn't be Linux or any other useful solutions we have today...And that's what most people take for granted.
