The quote you've posted wasn't there a couple of months ago.
So maybe it's time you stop being such a wiseguy if you're not affected by this. You are still mixing Optimus (real time switching), and video card use on any OS outside W7.
It is applaudable that Nvidia finally did that announcement after selling Optimus hardware for one year or so.
More, a lot of misinformation was spreading all over the net in the past, on this forum and others, not because
of bad intentions, but because some laptops have the option to switch GPU in BIOS, others have not.
I subscribe to the above remarks that some managers made nice backpoket money for themselves, developers have nothing to do with it.
I stick to the opinion that acpi code shall be asked to Intel and not to Nvidia.
