Non-free Ubuntu drivers: A Nuxified statement?
As you are probably aware there are things happening in the development of the next Ubuntu version, recently. In particular I am concerned about the future of the distro regarding proprietary drivers. Libervisco brought this up several times recently.
Well I found this blog post by Ubuntu developer Benjamin Mako Hill to be extremely well-balanced. I really recommend you read it.
I fully support the opinion he develops in this post, and I thought,
could Nuxified.org make a statement to the Ubuntu development community about this?
I am not really thinking of a petition where such and such members sign, but of an official statement that we could outvoice easily. For this, of course, a large majority of us would have to agree to it.
It is my feeling that this would be the case. The statements in the post really cover the opinions I come across here, especially regarding the regard for compromise, and respect for usage of proprietary software or drivers.
So here I ask: could we agree enough on a text very similar to the mentioned blog post, and then publicize it? Thanks for your comments.
PS: I came to find the mentioned post through netcitizen's blog so my thanks go to him/her for talking about it.
