One wonders if these same zealots stick to their guns about not buying
closed stuff when they buy their motherboards...  There's more than just
NVidia that's a magic black box in the computer.

Yes, I'd like to be totally free, but I've got Buckley's chance.  I'm
not going to trash a $1200 laptop just to change chipsets.  I still need
to be able to do naughty things like play MP3s, even though I'd prefer
ogg vorbis files (oggs sound better, too), but sometimes an MP3 is all
you're going to get.  And the list goes on...
