Position Statement on Linux Kernel Modules

,----[ Quote ]
| We, the undersigned Linux kernel developers, consider any closed-source Linux
| kernel module or driver to be harmful and undesirable. We have repeatedly
| found them to be detrimental to Linux users, businesses, and the greater
| Linux ecosystem. Such modules negate the openness, stability, flexibility,
| and maintainability of the Linux development model and shut their users off
| from the expertise of the Linux community. Vendors that provide closed-source
| kernel modules force their customers to give up key Linux advantages or
| choose new vendors. Therefore, in order to take full advantage of the cost
| savings and shared support benefits open source has to offer, we urge vendors
| to adopt a policy of supporting their customers on Linux with open-source
| kernel code.
| We speak only for ourselves, and not for any company we might work for today,
| have in the past, or will in the future.
