    This could all be solved instantly if Nvidia would open-source their drivers. AMD/ATI and Intel both have already done this, so I don't see how doing so would put Nvidia at any competitive disadvantage. People chose graphics hardware for the hardware, not the drivers.

    Drivers are important too, because if you cannot utilize your hardware, what's the point, then?
