Default Re: Support for X32 ABI

No, never. Have my word.

Here's an explanation. NVIDIA doesn't support Linux, because they like the idea of the Linux desktop. They support Linux because there's proprietary software for Linux which requires their GPUs. That proprietary software is available only for x86 and x86-64 platforms and there's no chance ISV will try to support yet another Linux specific architecture - it's not just the question of recompiling binaries - this new architecture will require substantial resources (QC/QA/etc.), i.e. money.
