Default Re: Satisfaction / dissatisfaction with nvidia

_Some_what satisfied. Driver-level support for GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap (and thus compiz/beryl) is nice, but the two big lingering bugs (that have affected me) are extremely annoying:

* The 7300/RS480 lockup problem.
* And of course, the black window bug.

Yes, I know that these are hard to reproduce, let alone fix. But the black window bug (to the best of my knowledge) has been around for a year.

Summary: The drivers (especially in comparison to AMD's) are pretty damn good, especially for linux. But it would be nice if we could see the progress of fixing bugs (ie. +50 on a bug database).
