Re: Bad Linux Politics

said by El Quintron:

I have to ask a question in this case:

How can we not have proprietary Optimus drivers, when we already have proprietary Nvidia/ATI drivers.

Isn't the logic behind each proprietary driver the same?

Linux does not contain proprietary anything. Drivers like these are externally provided and installed and not part of the kernel.

That doesn't change the nature of my question; if Nvidia and ATI drivers can be provided then why not Optimus ones?
