Thanks for organizing this into a concise well documented post. As this thread swells I hope it shows NV the large dissatisfied user base for their products on alternative OS's and increasing their support for such. Thus far my 8800GT has been the worst purchase I've made as I have many of the same issues with Compiz and Firefox.

he is also a lot of times right. And it wouldn't be the first time some PR drone calls an article 'bogus' and some month later the journalist is proven right.

I would not be surprised if Intel eventually buys NVidia. Not that I would be surprised if they don't either..... But it's not like the ATI/AMD deal where the two companies were similar in size...... Intel dwarfs all of them.

I guess they would not be allowed to buy nvidia, i don't think it would be a problem for them.
They also could buy AMD and get ATI for free (I guess for 5B$), but they like AMD too much to let them die (and hate them too much to let them live).

I think if they bought AMD, or attempted to, it would be viewed as an anti-competition measure, and we all saw where that went with Microsoft......

NVidia on the other hand, though they DO compete, it's not really in the same demographic. Nvidia makes high-end GPU's, whereas Intel's primary focus in the graphics market has historically always been entry-level stuff........

I wonder now if KDE + QT did this on purpose to piss at nVidia closed source, and that's why nVidia is dragging their feet in retaliation... this whole thing stinks.

Thing is nvidia is slow with gtk and cairo too. The effect is just more noticeable with qt because of the way it uses xrender (and I guess uses much more of it). Besides why would KDE/ trolltech want to piss off its users and developers ?

Whilst I do think nvidia does care, I don't think they care enough (or as much as we expect them to...not that they are required to, but still).

Yeah, what is that saying, never attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence, or something. I doubt it's anything sinister, it just crossed my mind as a part-time paranoid, lol.

I am pretty sure that Intel would not be allowed to do that.
