well, actually any piece of hardware in a computer is sorta
"closed-source". and we use gnu/linux on that computer. this doesn't
make anyone feel their gnu/linux is any less free. just as having
open-source drivers doesn't make their gnu/linux any freer.

i would explain why, but i am busy atm. guess i may soon find and send
you a link, as you seem quite concerned about this stuff.

there's always a way to "do it our way", if we do care. as long as we
exist, there's need. and as long as there's need, there's supply. i
don't care about the others as long as we have our own options. yes,
there are many of "them". but then again, there are hundreds of
millions of communists in china or windows users in the civilized world
-- who cares about them all? nobody will ever force me buy an
unsupported card.

why, absolutely agreed. in fact, my optimistic tone ("this will never
happen") was not meant -- i thought i'd made that evident! -- to
express an indolent and self-deceiving sense of safety. quite the
contrary, it was expressing determination. just that type of
determination our war needs.
