Perhaps should be, but isn't. Personally, I'd rather have a community
written libre software driver, created with company blessing, than a
company written closed-source driver. I don't won any nvidia cards or
chipsets for this reason.

That's not actually what the companies I've spoken to have been
saying. In any case, given the small market share, the drivers are
worth far more to the community than they are to the company.
