Certain drivers, i.e. video cards, can contain a number of pieces of proprietary information that give one company a leg up on the other (for example software optimizations, like NVidia's GPU JIT compiler)

I can understand why they wouldn't want to give away their competitive advantage.

Now other drives (network cards for example) I see no reason to not open source it.
