A stable driver ABI would lead to more proprietary drivers and nobody wants that.
Proprietary drivers are usually only supported for a few years before the vendor drops them to increase the sales of new hardware.
In the meantime, almost all libre drivers in Linux enjoy support for decades, on a large number of system architectures.

Why do people still think that taking an antique computer and adding Linux is such an amazing thing?

This is a 7 year old laptop - and while someone may have replaced all the batteries with new ones, dismantled it and cleaned the internals with an air duster, and cleaned up the case it's still a diverted piece of e-waste.

Charging people $320 for something that probably cost them less than $50 to acquire is gouging - especially when people have problems with them.

I assume your time is worth nothing and the new batteries are free.

Think of your family tonight. Try to crawl home after the computer crashes.
