You must not be reading the same lists I do... ;-)

I see no ends of complaints on this list as well as the fedora-test-list and
fedora-devel-list and IRC about all sorts of obscure bugs caused by
proprietary drivers (and nvidia in particular). They are not supported nor
even supportable by anybody other than the manufacturer, who usually does a
horrible job, in particular their installer scripts invariably overwrite
system libraries in a way which will break as soon as the system package is
updated and which also makes uninstalling the driver a hit-or-miss

Don't buy NVidia! Nor a Radeon HD, those are not supported by the Free (as
in speech) drivers yet either.
