Default Re: We want nvidia linux powerpc drivers !!

That firmware thing would be about the same as my "higher abstracted binary core" that I suggested in the other thread. Doesn't make much difference whether it is firmware or loaded module in kernel space. Same core for Windoze, Linux, FreeBSD, Fluxkit and NeXTStep/x86 or whatever you use as long as it is the same processor architecture.

But as I said, since the same argument is now used to withhold documentation for SATA and GbE I don't buy that line of thought out of NVidia's mouth at all.

The advantage that NVidia had over ATI is melting fast.
