Re: BSD, and AMD-64 Support
I hope you are aware that I'm not connected, in any way to nVidia.
Personally, I'd like nothing more then having nVidia open bigger parts of their driver and let the community help. However, due to NDA/licensing problems, I doubt that we'll ever see a open nVidia-sponsored driver. You can try PM zander and ask him. Who knows, maybe they'll be willing to sign you up on their NDA and let you contribute to the BSD driver.
As for writing OS natural driver.
A. I do it for a living. (Windows/Linux kernel drivers)
B. Keep your /smart/ insults to yourself. Period.
I believe this discussion (at least my part in it) is over.
