In no way is nvidia hostile toward linux. Their drivers are the best quality I've ever seen. I wish we could have open source drivers, but until there is a business case, can you really expect them to?

I think Intel has been one of the longest standing partners in Linux and they have recently open sourced their wireless drivers (except for the firmware). Don't you think nvidia will eventually follow suit? Let nvidia know that theyre doing a good job, but there is bug xyz that could have been fixed if there was an open source version.
