... for the company doing the domination, not the user. OSS radeon drivers are pretty good, and generally so are intel's (except for poor performance in some chipsets), so there are already some companies "dominating" the open-source driver space. Besides this little aspect, I agree that it should be the hardware manufacturer doing what it takes to stimulate the market.
