What's next for Ubuntu, the Metro interface? Oh wait...
It is, but there is no law that says you can not use proprietary software with linux. The NVIDIA linux driver is closed and not free and many people are fine with that because it allows full acceleration and features that the free drivers do not have.
I like the idea of free software and will use it if I see fit, but I also see the need for non-free software and I have no issues using it. Stallman on the other hand would probably kill himself before using non-free software.
