I know a lot of linux users personally. Most of them use nvidia. None of them has problems. I changed my mobo yesterday, reboot - everything worked fine. In fact - look at my posts, do I have a problem? Nope. I hang around in this forum because I try to help people.
So, the only people with nvidia problems are here. I and all the nvidia owning linux using guys I know in real life don't have any problems.
What does that say?
1) the drivers ARE working for the vast majority.
2) because this is a support forum, problems are voiced here and it looks a lot worse than it is.
Have a look at the mac-support forums (not nvidia). If you read there, you should come to the conclusion, that every single mac is completly broken - which is obviously not true.
So the guys out there: stop buying crap (btw Asrock boards always worked fine). Stop being annoying, and STOP ACTING LIKE EVERYBODY HAS YOUR PROBLEM! Because you are talking bull****.
And the 'but nv works' argument is bogus (as the vesa one). That drivers don't really use the hardware at all or any features that might be critical (like agp&co), so of course you don't have problems. Hint: if you only use vga®ister programming, you won't have problems too. Oh, the surprise!
