Sorry, Yoshi, but I'm with Linus and the others.
I thought open source was about choice. I didn't choose this laptop with an ATi graphics card (my college did that for me, another story), but I chose to run Linux on it. And I should be able to choose to run the binary drivers until a distro-shipped open source driver does what I want it to, because I choose not to use git and recompile my graphical backbone every other day.
GNU is all about freedom and choice. I don't think they should take away my choices, even if said choice limits my own freedom.
