Default Re: nouveau : Open Source 3D acceleration for nVidia cards

pe1chl: nv is the xorg 'standard' 2D only driver, made mostly by nvidia and heavily obfuscated. Its main purpose is to make users able to use X until they downloaded and installed the drivers from nvidia.

nouveau is an attempt to get open source 2D and 3D drivers, independent from Nvidia.

See the difference?
