In response to the idea of installing non-opensource Nvidia/ati drivers
by default. I can understand both sides of the arguement on this. Why
not make this an option for the user. Add a dialog for the user ASKING
weather or not he wants to do this, and explaining Pros and Cons ( Pro:
improved 3d support, Con: is not opensource and will taint the kernel ).

If we really want to become THE alterantive Desktop OS, then we must not
only appeal to buisnessmen, who want good, stable office applications
and security but also to teenagers, who want Command and Conqueror and
other 3d games.
