Asking NVIDIA to invest resources into this is kind of wasteful IMO. It'd be cheaper for the economy as a whole to just upgrade hardware if you really need to use the latest software tech.
I bought my card new serveral years ago,and I bought it because it was what I needed for my mother board. It would make more sense to keep this stuff working. That would be good for the economy and the local land fill. My video worked just fine on ubuntu 11.10 and mint 12.It now does not work on 12.04 because of one minor change to xorg.( not nvidea fault). The point is this a very good card and will take anything that I have trown at it.I have not yet seen any good reason why I should not exspect driver to be updated and to work.
