“But mah FPS!!” I have never understood the relative lack of loyalty amongst nerds. Demand more FLOSS, but buy NVIDIA for a few frames per second. Use Chrome instead of Firefox for a few milliseconds on render. Rejoice at clang while maintaining that GCC never did anything good for anybody.

The whole point of libre software is that the choice of what you use matters, but I rarely see ethical considerations trump hot rodding.
