Agreed to a point; BUT if they are involved in testing it -- then they can log a bug report and they are kept up-to-date on the process where the fix is at.

nVidia however is not involved (publicly) in that process, so when people see a change in the system, the first thing they try to do is to make the people responsible aware of it (like 4K Stacks). People get fustrated when there is no communications about: 1. Yes they recognized it is a problem; 2. They will fix it; 3. What release and when; 4. Offer beta releases to testers (when available).

Once that is done..... people know what to expect and are less likely to get fustrated. It is called EXPECTATION MANAGEMENT

It is unlikely that they treat Microsoft Windows in the same manner. I doubt they wait until AFTER the final is released, and then begin to work on the problem.
