Default Re: Post here if you think nVidia should hurry the **** up with their XOrg 7.1 driver

I don't know what value Linux support adds for nVidia (in terms of $$$) but you can bet that a few hundred whining home computer users who want the latest in X11 eye-candy don't figure very highly!

The whole 3D desktop thing is new, in a couple of years it will be established and well-supported. Throwing a tantrum about wanting it RIGHT NOW won't speed it up at all.
I somehow doubt profanity will speed things along either. The moderators posted a month ago that the Xorg 7.1 compatible drivers should be out in August.
1. Do any current distros even use 7.1 yet? ("test" releases don't count...)
2. Does anyone here know what a "development schedual" is?

Okay, I know most of you do. And most of you are avoiding this thread like the plague....
