I can't disagree with your statement here, but that's really not the point that
Mr. Friedman has been incorrectly asserting.

To address your reply, however, I believe that I have stated here before that I
currently use and recommend Intel graphic chipsets entirely due to the
open-source nature of their drivers.  I have had a substantial influence on
what gets sold in my neighbourhood for use with Linux (i.e. people who know me
as the "computer guy" and come and ask questions, plus the local computer
store whose owner is a friend of mine as well).

My most recent experience:  One guy that I know has been hassling around with
his proprietary video card and Ubuntu for some months -- he mentioned to me
yesterday that he is considering the purchase of a new computer to get away
from video problems with what he has now.  "I wish I would have talked to you
before I bought that piece of junk," he said.

As you say, everyone's experience may be different.  But I like the path of
least resistance, in this case known as "just works".
