And, before someone points out that NVIDIA might just release the
hardware specs, the hardware contains components and designs from third
parties as well.  Don't buy NVIDIA hardware if you don't like the
situation.  If they start loosing enough sales from this (*absurd
laughter*) then they might start making hardware free of third-party
components and released with open source drivers.  Spouting "evil
capitalistic corporation" stuff isn't going to get anyone very far.  ;-)
