But wouldn't they just say "we provide a driver, if you don't want to us
it, that's your choice"? As far as I can see, the only way this would
hurt them is if there were a video card with open source, accelerated
driver available, which we could purchase *instead* of their hardware.
I don't know of any such hardware.
