Why does it matter how old the tech is?
We live in a capitalistic world, ruled heavily by ROI. You may not like it, I don't either, but it's the current reality. So from this perspective, Nvidia being reluctant to support Geforce 4 cards on an OS with a small market share makes perfect sense. Despite your personal feeling towards that, it is the state of today's world. A world where feeling don't really play a role. So it *does* matter how old the tech is.

I understand your anger. But after the anger subsides, you do need to acknowledge the reality of the situation. My laptop with a Geforce 6 is now seven years old. Really, I bought it in 2005. In the fast-paced electronics world, this laptop is museum tech. And here you are, being angry that even older tech might not be supported anymore.
