True, but for some 'older' model nVidia cards, noveau is the ONLY way to
go, the Proprietary nVidia driver will not support the card.
With that being said, noveau has a way to go to provide the same support
as the nVidia driver and this is either due to a lack of documentation
or the inability to 'black box' the proprietary driver.

Again, nVidia/AMD drivers are NOT available for all video cards and if
the system is a laptop, the video subsystem is not swappable anyway (you
are stuck with what you got in the box.)
Lastly, Fedora and several other Linux distributions throw up 'tainted
kernel' messages when you use closed drivers.
