It's either time to upgrade, or use appropriate versions of software, e.g. you can easily run XFCE with nouveau.
My hardware is fully adequate to run GNOME Shell decently: the open-source community put a great effort for free in developing a desktop environment which is usable even on low-end / old computers.
On the contrary, Nvidia, that I funded with my own money when I bought their product, isn't willing to put the same effort in granting me the support I have the right to demand. Is this a reason for me to be forced to spend further money and upgrade an hardware which is still decent? I don't think so.

If you have anything to say to NVIDIA, talk to Jen-Hsun Huang directly.

Aaron and other NVIDIA guys here do not choose which products to support.

The thread is closed.
I have the right to show my disapproval the way I prefer. Anyway, my criticism isn't towards the guys here, but towards the company and its unfair policies.
