Default Re: Optimus support for Linux

This is a shame. I have been a fan of Nvidia for a long time, I purchase only nvidia products, as well as hundreds of products for my clients. As a strict linux user I have put my computer purchasing on hold and hopefully temporarily have stopped recommending nvidia cards to my clients. I was forced to return my new m11x alienware laptop beause of the lack of support with optimus. I hope Nvidia's decision is temporary, as I wish to continue using Nvidia products.
