I do know that the driver is from Nvidia not from FreeBSD but anyway FreeBSD as a whole supports that card. I admit, blobs are difficult for the developers but allow user to run the device. That's the world.

About firmware, is apart the driver (so you can debug the driver itself I believe) but without that blob firmware you can't use the device anyway- so what's the difference for the end user? Will end user (just a daily user, office or desktop) debug the code?

Oko was right but for the end user only the ability to use the device is important (as long the deiver doesn't crash your system each 5 minutes).

I don't want to dig it deeper- excusses.
