Default Re: Will everyone PLEASE stop trashing the Nvidia Linux devs?

This has been said numerous times, but I'll go ahead and say it again because it's just true:
The number of Windows users exceed the number of Linux users by a very large margin, thus, it's no surprise a company invests much more resources into making the Windows drivers flawless rather than the Linux drivers.

Besides, while this may be surprising, Linux graphics driver development is much harder than Windows. Constant changes in APIs, different kernel and X server versions, poor third-party software that makes it hard to interact, etc etc... It's impossible to reproduce every testing environment, while in Windows you don't have to worry about all that. It's just Windows.

Just face it: You never gonna get the level of support the Windows users have. You might as well not bash the devs and try to make your bug reports better so they can track and fix the problem faster.
