According to all indications, bleeding edge (re: this topic) will rapidly become mainstream... in other words all Linux users will suffer once mainstream merges this work -- only distros that do not upgrade kernels will remain 'solid on the 2.6.x'. In this you are right... up to a point in time, where you become very wrong.

I do not stand with those that think nVIDIA should put extensive effort into following the bleeding edge, however, in this case significant changes are being made that WILL effect the ability of their drivers to perform. I expect that in time they will correct these problems -- it would be reasonable for the engineers to begin looking at the problem now.
