To be honest, (i myself do not really care if the drivers are open or 
not, i do not have the require level of geekyness to change them :p) i 
couldnt care less if the drivers are open or not.

Aslong as we/someone could run a opensource OS on it, such as OM, i'd 
love it!

I want the ability to change everything, but having a different cpu/gpu 
driver isnt exactly a high priority. Ofcourse this would be great, but a 
closed driver will do fine if my phone can have specs as good as that!
