Default Re: Open Source Demos

I second that - it would be great if the tech-demos were open source, not only to try them on Linux (and compare Linux to Windows performance - but I doubt Nvidia wants that?), but also because the sourcecode could be very interesting for game and application developers. But I think Nvidia uses quite a few hacks and tricks in their tech-demos to make them look good, and don't want people to know how they work because of that...
