It's akin to blaming Microsoft that Windows 7 doesn't run at all on your Pentium III PC with 256MB of RAM or that Android 4.x doesn't run on your 4 yo smartphone which only has 128MB of RAM. It's either time to upgrade, or use appropriate versions of software, e.g. you can easily run XFCE with nouveau.
My hardware is fully adequate to run GNOME Shell decently: the open-source community put a great effort for free in developing a desktop environment which is usable even on low-end / old computers.
On the contrary, Nvidia, that I funded with my own money when I bought their product, isn't willing to put the same effort in granting me the support I have the right to demand. Is this a reason for me to be forced to spend further money and upgrade an hardware which is still decent? I don't think so.

If you have anything to say to NVIDIA, talk to Jen-Hsun Huang directly.

Aaron and other NVIDIA guys here do not choose which products to support.

The thread is closed.
I have the right to show my disapproval the way I prefer. Anyway, my criticism isn't towards the guys here, but towards the company and its unfair policies.
