support the Nouveau project , project for makin’ opensource nividia driver rather than to waste money with the closed sucky drivers.
Or spare money for the OpenGraphic™ card, a full open graphic card for everyone on any platform and O.S.
Cause, it’s dangerous, ask to distros to load closed drivers, it’s like asking to wipe out whole the hard works until now.
Closed driver is dangerous for opensource kernel, it’s time, we aren’t dependant yet. You can do it yourself, but you know the consequences.
Here i’m using an ATI 9000 with DRI and i’m pretty lucky, it runs smooth, i can even run Compiz with AIGLX.
Also, you’ll note ATI/AMD stopped the support for chipset <r350, it’s a good proof of the “suckiness” politic of closed drivers. Thanks to Freedesktop to support us again.
Note, you could get an Intel also, these are quite fast.
It be could if a product that famous than Blender makes more pressure on the importance of using Opensource drivers, by why not “boycotting” NVIDIA™ or ATI™ closed drivers.
But i can hardly think they’ll do that.
We are in position to ask something, Opensources Softwares and Operating systems are very powerful now, it’s time to get something… like a total freedom about graphic hardware.
Damn, i’m in hurry to try an OpenGraphic card.
No, no and NO!
INDEED, you don’t see as you don’t know nothing about Opensource!
You, users, are really boring and dangerous for the opensource’s future.
Devs fought to get specs on some hardware, dev fought to “reverse ingeneer” closed hardware to give us the chance to use GNU/Linux/FreeBSD/OpenBSD freely, and here, you, you’re asking to wipe all out?
You want 3D accel by default, ask to Nvidia/ATI to open their drivers and support Opensource project… or go simply to OSX/WindowsVISTA. that’s it.
