Re: Opinions on driver license
I use the Nv driver. I wish someone with the time and resources would port the nvidia UtahGLX driver to Mesa/DRI so that work could begin on adding 3D features to the OSS driver for newer Nvidia cards. The specs would be extremely helpful though. I'd also like to see nvidia develop an HTX compatible GPU to get around some of the Intel IP issues. The only other IP problems are the Microsoft vertex programming and fragment shading patents, and I dbout that we would see them act on that.
I'll see if I can get someone at Novel to act on the the Mesa/DRI driver (since they will no longer distribute the illegal binary modules).
Thank you for your time,
