So what is the advantage of Linux then if you easily give up its major
advantage, namely being open-source?

Try to name one linux distribution with only free open source software
available, debian no, suse no, red hat no, ubuntu no ...

So been not open source is not the issue, well then the problem is kernel is
GPL and nvidia binarie driver is not ?? _That's mean you can't provide the
nvidia driver with the kernel in the same media_, but not in the same server
as a repositories ?? ... that's just ridiculous, there is just no legal
issue there.
