A proprietary driver from some vendor tainting kernel-space is not in any way OK, as the developers cannot reliably debug problems that can and will arise, who knows what it's fiddling with.

OpenBSD does not have binary-blob kernel modules, device firmware in /etc/firmware is totally unrelated.. it is code that is executed by microcontroller located inside hardware, it cannot tamper with critical kernel structures.

Oko was entirely correct "Pjoter", nVidia supports FreeBSD, I don't believe the FreeBSD developers support nVidia.
