So you are suggesting;

We buy the hardware (company makes profit).
We don't use the drivers they provide (no hardware acceleration).
They open source their drivers and hardware specs (exactly WHY would 
they do that?).

They've already made their profit.  The drivers are given away free...  
if we choose to cripple our machines, how is that hurting them?

Idealistic, yes.  "Sensible"? Hardly.

Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
