Re: Satisfaction / dissatisfaction with nvidia
I must say I really dislike non-free stuff, especially stuff that touches my kernel. However Nvidia's drivers are atleast functional and right now there's no real alternative for gnu/linux users since Intel has no pci/agp/pci-e cards to offer.
However, its the small things that rubs me the wrong way. The lack of verbosity in the changelog is just one thing. Nvidia could really earn a lot of points, at least in my book, by being more transparent with it's bugs.
When a gfx-card with tvout & 3d capabilities with FREE drivers hits the market i'll be sure to never buy a card with non-free drivers ever again. AMD made some encouraging comments regarding free/open ati-drivers a while back. Let's hope it's not just talk.
