IMHO, we should not let proprietary drivers hold us hostage that way.
not and should not support them. We don't even ship them. So we should just
upgrade X if the software we ship is ready for it. If some proprietary
driver breaks, its users get to keep the pieces.
I agree to some extent, but in the real world, there are a significant
number of Fedora users that use such third-party software. Breaking it
with no consideration will end up pushing users to other distributions,
which shouldn't be done without forethought.
