Andrew Fear quote clarification request
I just read an article containing the following quote from Andrew Fear of Nvidia. I was wondering if someone from Nvidia could clarify what was said. The article is located here ( http://www.zdnetasia.com/news/softwa...9352584,00.htm )
The quote is:
1: When Mr Fear referrs to "customers", is he speaking about OEMs, VAR/HARs, or end-users?
2: Has Nvidia looked at cases where companies 'have' open sourced (part of) their graphics driver? Withe the XGI acquisition, has having an OSS 2D driver been a benefit or detriment to Nvidia?
3: From which kernel is the Nvidia 2D driver derived (SysV, BSD, NT, Linux)?
Thank you for your time,
