I'm not. I want them to Free their drivers.

It is a win for the Free Software movement. It is also begging support
from some company that has no respect for its users.
> How much of *your* work have you open sourced?
None of it. I have released it all under the GPL or the LGPL, which is
far better than merely open sourcing it.
