Gotta read about the driver vs. firmware thingy. Are any others’ GPU firmwares open? Is nvidia’s approach very much out of balance? Where do we (traditionally) draw the line? tldr?

I heard Intel and AMD are open already. Though I don't know too what extent.

But Nvidias move is financially motivated rather than being the good guys now. Several code artifacts have been leaked in the last weeks. Plus Nvidia lost market shares to AMD in datacenter market since they all run Linux.
