Default Legacy driver...

Hello,
often when a new kernel is released or a new Linux distribution is out,
NVIDIA patches his driver to make it working.

I've seen that my NV20 will be in the next legacy driver
Will you continue supporting legacy driver to fix the problem that a new kernel or a new distro may bring?

Yes, the NVIDIA Linux legacy graphics drivers are going to continue to be updated as necessary to address critical bugs and incompatibilities, if possible.

abd will there be also small bug-fixes like the wine/performance bugs in 9629?
I don't care about new features, my card is too old anyway ... however a good working system would be great of course
