This attitude will get us nowhere.
Most of the people want Open Source software because it tends to be better, simply because people can change it and because it is free.
NVidia is marketleader, and always ahead on the competition. They don't want to document their technology because they are afraid this might be used by the competition.
NVidia does however release free, market leading drivers for Linux users, making it the best choice performance wise. Therefore it isn't so much of an issue to me and I think most of the users.
I understand you would rather have it opened up, but there are a lot more things to worry about in Linux world then NVidia right now. Actually if more company's would react like NVidia, Linux would have been much further right now.
