I wouldn't say that. There's nothing wrong with using the binary
driver per se, just that it makes debugging hellishly difficult.
There are other more political arguments which have merit but
which many just are not interested in.

You're right. It probably didn't at the time. Note, people would
love to program accelerated 3D support in to the nv driver if specs
were made available, even just for older chipsets. But this is a
tired old debate - apologies for trying to influence your choice
of graphics driver.
