Default Just wanted to say thanks

Hi,

since im a coder and i know how thankless being a coder is i figured it would be nice to say thanks to the nvidia linux driver coders and the support team of the forums.

i know how much it is a pain to release something and have to support it and there are not enough people out there who actually know what its like to deal with the up keep of PR and release of software..


I just installed the drivers today on my custom built linux and it worked like a charm..

the final Thanks and Good work on getting it working on 2.6.18-rc4

I second this sentiment. I think the nVidia guys in here do a great job, and although a proprietary driver, the help and support supplied is second to nobody; this Linux forum is the best ever in this catagory.

I'd also like to say thanks. Not to get anything started, but the determining factor in my decision to buy an Nvidia card over other cards for my new Linux box was because of the great support you guys give to the Linux community. It's much appreciated.

Same here. Nvidia driver works great. If there would be more developers we could have more features. Nvidia is the best for Linux of course thanks to Nvidia Linux driver team wisdom.

I rarely drop by here but I have always wanted to express my thanks to nVidia for their brilliant Linux support. I never consider any other manufacturer when buying or upgrading my graphics hardware.

Thank You.

The first nvidia card I owned was a Riva 3400TNT back when it was a nice card and I have owned nothing but for the main reason of the linux support. Have a 6600GT now and a 5700 in the Mythbox and for the only issue of refresh rates changing every release they work perfectly.
