Default Re: Opinions on driver license

Would be cool to hear an NVidia official going "I'm sorry, but our main support force has now switched to opensource operating systems. Microsoft Windows users may now have to wait a bit longer for updates." :D

Seriously, it's true that they could speed up development pace a little, as you can always go faster, but is it really important ? I think it's pretty good already actually. Of course logic would be that they provide Linux and BSD support for any NVIDIA cards out there (which is why opensource OS needs hardcore 3d upgrade-my-gpu-every-6-months gamers ;-). BTW, i think i heard the open source driver and the windows driver had a common base, so it may not be that "hard" for them to support new cards on Linux/BSD. Not sure though.
