The newer hardware is opensource (ARM, Loongson).
The open drivers are progressing very good.
We see rise in open technology (OpenMP, 0MQ, HTML5) and decline of the proprietary.
Recent lawsuits are not due to NDAs, but due to patents. Patents are all "open-source" in patent registry.
Its Linux that made a revolution in mobile and ebook market.
Its BSD who was rightfully mis-used to create MacOSX from ashes.
HURD still recieves attention, but its was developed at slow rate since its start; mainly because Linux was THE kernel for GNU from version 0.1 and saw major development.
Intel currently lacks raw GPU power and has no plans to go past mid-range chip (if we believe them). Otherwise, 99% of Linux users would be using Intel. Not 50% as of now.
For those using Windows, I don't care. They have different viewpoints.
But open technology is on the rise, definitely not on decline.
For example, the Windows clone-OS ReactOS is on serious decline, due almost no one to use it. These people use either Linux now or returned to windows. This only proves that open technology has proven itself and is not cloning anyone, but living on its own now.
