While work may inspire you to disregard your principles, others see
gaming in a similar light. While it may not put food on the table,
they do need higher graphics capabilities for their games. Open source
drivers (at the moment), simply don't make the cut.

For that matter, a game developer using Linux would NEED those drivers for work.
