We'll have to agree to disagree on that.

I don't find it a PITA (I have akmod-nvidia installed) and the 3D
performance of the Intel chipset is not great enough to satisfy the
applications that some of my users run.

I appreciate the point that Intel is much more open in it's driver
development and I wish NVidia were the same, but they're not and I
decided to sacrifice a little freedom for a lot of performance.
