I think the scary thing about this idea is that manufacturers may see
this as a viable way to support Linux. Why write an open source driver
or fund an open-source driver, or release specs so people can make open
source drivers if you can just make a binary windows driver and have it
work on Linux too?
In my opinion this gives manufacturers even less of a reason to look
into open-source driver support for their hardware.
I swear this is bad news. Time will tell.
