I bit tired of trying...
 
I have problems with my nvidia driver. These are the services that i haven't been able to make it work:

* Handling of memory: Suddenly running http://www.beryl-project.org/ I get black windows. This seems a bad handling of memory of the driver.
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=84562

* Suspend: coming back from suspend/hibernate in my laptop is very buggy. I also get a black screen where I can only see the pointer. Some people have made it work. I have tried without success. It seems a bit messy.

* Sensors: again a problem. It not only fails, but also avoid other sensors to work properly.
http://www.lm-sensors.org/ticket/2158

Is there a roadmap for future releases of the driver? I can understand there is lot of work here. Please open source and let others to work for you!

a graphic driver is not only about opengl.
Let the opensource comunity work WITH you.

Just a thought.

While its exactly my opinion that a graphic driver is more than just a highly performant opengl implementation I wonder wether you would be part of that "opensource community" that would get their hands dirty with source? Or can't you even write code?

By the way its really sad how little features NVidia's Linux driver got over the last years. Except its installer and its superior opengl performance its simply ... sucks!
