Thirdly, How exactly is Nvidia leeching from OSS, exactly? (they aren't!). One could easily say that Nouveau is leeching off of Nvidia's blob, though. - ie: it wouldn't even exist without Nvidia's blob. Nvidia also has and does contribute to some oss projects, X.org is an example of one of them. They also have been pretty good about making their development tools available, free of charge. Nvidia can't even leech anything. being as the GPL blocks them from being able to do so. 'export GPL' also doesn't allow them to use/leech onto existing kernel interfaces.
so explain to me how they are 'leeching', exactly - or is your use of he word 'leeching' just incorrect, here?
I doubt you've contributed more than some other users in this forum, we see some very well-known developers around here (ie: people who work for Redhat, AMD or heavy contributors to X.org, etc). How many millions of people are using applications that you are the original author of, exactly??? Furthermore, you're not the only one around here whom has contributed to OSS projects, so if were expecting me to marvel at your bug fixes - to be honest i don't really give a fuck. I doubt you are a heavy contributor to any of the projects/software that i use daily, and are actually important to me.
Do yourself a favor and just shut the fuck up, seriously. - or maybe you should go back to one of the nvidia threads and tell us for the umpteenth time "fuck you, nvidia" ~ as if Adsx' position even matters or has any bearing on anything.
