Default Re: Request to nVidia - Framebuffer Support with the proprietary driver. SOMEHOW can

Another plus of having nvidia fbdev is unicode support. This is not important for English Linux users but the rest of the World may be really interested.
The VGA console only allows 256 characters. Of course we can use ISO-88859-x codepage but this is not convenient if I would like to read in languages from different parts of Europe or World at once. Unicode is just additional feature which does not need support in driver.
