NDAd Drivers Don't Make Everyone Happy

by chromatic

Not everyone in the world of free and open source software praised Greg Kroah-Hartman's Free Linux Driver Development! offer (and see his later clarification in Free Linux Driver Development Questions and Answers!). Specifically, the OpenBSD project criticized the offer to work on free drivers under NDA.

Agreed.


NDA developed drivers may be a short term solution, but it hurts open source in the long run. (Unacceptable).
