In an interview with RMS on LinuxDevCenter I saw the following question:
FB: What is your opinion on the fact that Linux (the kernel!) supports binary drivers without too many problems? I'll make an example: the OpenBSD project didn't support Atheros wireless chips because they require a binary HAL provided with an incompatible license for their goals and policy. They act consistently. Do you think that Linux (the kernel!) should try a similar rigorous approach?
RMS: Yes! And so should the developers of GNU/Linux distributions. This is very important.
A big thumbs up for OpenBSD from RMS! :-)
This is good news. For once we can only hope people will listen to RMS.
