How NVidia Impedes Free and Open Source Desktop Adoption

http://vizzzion.org

Linux developers demand open drivers, docs and development processes, NVIDIA refuses to open their drivers, arguing that the technical quality is not a problem, and that the driver contains intellectual property they wish to protect. ATI/AMD has shown the intellectual property argument is at least not universally applicable to graphics hardware. Let's also clear up a misconception about the technical quality of closed NVIDIA drivers.

Free software drivers: the unmatrix

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

Well, it’s been a while—“cough!”—the set’s all dusty since my previous post about 3D cards...One thing that isn’t quite dusty though, is the state of free software drivers!

NVIDIA: Got Specifications?

http://www.phoronix.com

This past week AMD raised the Linux graphics bar but the ball has now landed in NVIDIA's court. NVIDIA can either play ball by pushing forward with a similar effort, and then all of the big three GPU manufacturers would be cradling an open-source strategy, or they may find themselves in trouble down the road.

Currently, GNU/Linux users with Nvidia graphics cards have two choices: Either use the proprietary drivers and violate their free software principles, or use the free nv driver and do without 3-D acceleration. The Nouveau project is working to overcome this dilemma by producing its own set of fully functional free Nvidia drivers.
