Journal kebes's Journal: Nearing critical mass for funding open nVidia drivers

I was just made aware of a pledge drive attempting to raise $10,000 USD to help fund a project working on open-source nVidia drivers. This would provide full 3D-acceleration to open-source operating systems, and could potentially sidestep the persistent debate between "partial support with open-source drivers" vs. "full support with proprietary drivers." It appears that the organizers intend to use the FSF as an intermediary to transfer the funds. They are already more than 3/4 of the way to their goal. Is this a viable model for future software development? Will companies like nVidia take notice?
