    i don't care for nouveau on freebsd. because like normal OSes, it has a stable API, so binary drivers work properly.

    Unless he is writing drivers, him caring will not matter very much.

    Not that Linux had no binary drivers or something. Open Source is not the ultimate answer to anything.

    Well it does matter, if more people would use open source driver instead of closed one, nvidia would make more effort to open their drivers.
    If nvidia bankrupts their closed source driver will soon become useless.

    Also unstable API (and ABI) isn't only reason for open source.

    If nVidia bankrupts, open source drivers won't have much use either anymore.
