Hmmm, you have a really odd definition of openly hostile. As an open source
developer I am in regular contact with developers from nvidia who support the
nvidia driver on FreeBSD that they actively maintain. OTOH, certain other
open source projects have a known history of intentionally changing ABIs to
break the nvidia driver. I find that a good bit more hostile than the open
collobration I've had with nvidia.
