There are also other kinds of people who just choose the vendors who
work with opensource community and whose products do not need nonfree
firmware. Personally, I have stayed away from tg3 (among other things)
because the vendor and/or driver authors can't make it work hassle-free
for me. It _seems_ to go against kernel and Debian policies and so
causes troubles. As a user, I see nothing wrong with (for instance)
standard firmware loading interface support so nonfree firmware can be
supported better by distributions.
