Those drivers taint the kernel and theres no source... also those
drivers are not free as in freedom but rather free as in beer...
How are fedora kernel maintainers/developers are going to support
those modules if they dont even have the source?
We (the zealots) want free drivers as part of the standard kernel.
Tell nvidia and ati to get their drivers upstream, its as easy as that
;))).
