the answer is NOT ,its the same price for linux and windows but we are always "praying for drivers support".
we are always praying , they have to listen to linux users, we are paying money for your cards!!!!!! so give service!!!

I want to ask to anybody of NVIDIA corp, my money has the same value of a windows user??????

answer (choose) :

a)YES, -----> then give linux suppport, im paying for that.
b )NOT------>so , i will buy anther card, and you know what you can do whith your cards
sorry you are upset with the nvidia linux support... i think that they are better than most companies tho... atleast they have released some drivers and havent stood in the way of reverse engineered ones (ah-la forcedeth)... guess i have been using linux for about 10 years now (1993 seams right.... ) and support from businesses has gotten quite a bit better since then... then you couldnt even get drivers. i agree that my money should be as valuable as a windows users, but i realize that the fact of the matter is that nvidia and other companies see linux as a "fringe" OS and are not willing to put the money in to developing and supporting drivers. i am happy that atleast something exists... considering there are some hardware manufacturers out there that go out of there way to make sure no linux drivers exist or will ever exist.
