Default Re: NVIDIA Developer Talks Openly About Linux Support

Statically linking to glibc is not an option due to differences in things like the malloc implementation. There are cases where libGL allocates data that it returns to the application, which frees it using Xfree. If the library is statically linked, the malloc tracking information for that allocation may be wrong. There are countless problems like that that make it unfeasible to statically link it.
