Nvidia drops the opensource driver

Since lately I was thinking on 3D on Linux I was (a little disappinted) when I was told that Nvidia drops their Opensource drivers. Ok, their support has always been historically mininal, with only the basic 2D acceleration and many of the major features (like power management, RandR 1.2/1.3, KMS) crippled at best, but I feel somewhat disappointed.
They suggest to use their X.Org VESA driver instead.
