IHMO the proper solution would be to fix up those old drivers. But a
lot of people who know how to do this don't have the hardware any more.

If the free software community was working the way it's always been
painted this would not be a problem at all: those people who still
have and use this harware would just do this themselves... oh, well.

There is something wrong there.

The users of a piece of hardware may have no idea how to fix a driver, they may be just users. People that know how to do that, devs, are probably tech lovers that love current, powerful hardware... so users are left stranded.

Told other way, it is wrong to assume that any user can maintain software by themselves.
