You got that backwards. The blobs are NO REAL ALTERNATIVE to the vastly superior open source drivers.Still the OSS drivers are in no way a real alternative to the binary blobs.
You're, of course, referring to the blobs.... because the open source drivers actually work.Only evangelists are torturing themselves with these drivers.
Which is what works and comes pre-installed with their favorite distro --> open source.Normal people just use what works best.
You tell me....Why should I watch the [blob] driver drain all my battery if I have a better alternative?
Again, you're obviously referring to the blob drivers, because the open source drivers have more useful features. And no, you don't have to manually install them, they install automatically.Why should I deal with missing features if a better alternative is just an "apt-get install" away.
The blob driver will never work. In fact, it will just keep getting worse.By that time those drivers will hopefully work.
Whose hardware is 10 years old? AKAIK, the blob driver has dropped support for 10 year old hardware, so your concerns are pointless. That certainly isn't a point supporting your position.Otherwise just buy new stuff. No one cares about 10 year old hardware.
